The School of Fashion centres Inclusive, Decolonized and Sustainable perspectives and positions the School as a place to inspire positive action and innovation grounded in social and environmental justice.

Our main goal for the Fashion Research Collection (FRC) is to expand the archive by adopting these principles to further build the collection as a place that includes the perspectives and histories of diverse groups. In support of this goal, we encourage research and conversations from our students, faculty, visiting scholars, and community that promote an inclusive, sustainable and decolonized fashion system.

We also recognize that we’re at the beginning of this journey and that there is much work to do in order to achieve a truly inclusive and equitable collection but we are excited by the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.
