Explain why you chose to take this course (sustainability in fashion). How will the knowledge of sustainability and choosing eco-friendly fashion products help you with your merchandising/marketing career? Then, reflecting on this module's textbook readings and resources, discuss whether you agree or disagree with the following statement by Fletcher: "For too long environmentalists have treated fashion as an irrelevance, an unnecessary extravagance and the chief cause of escalating consumption levels. We think that this neglects the power and influence of fashion (for good as well as bad). And for too long the fashion sector has been indifferent to what happens to a garment beyond the point of purchase. We think that transforming people's relationships with their clothes can empower them, fuel personal creativity and reduce environmental impact." Explain.
