THE MULTIFUNCTIONAL REALITY OF THE FASHION EMBRACE

Modern consumer society strives for mass production and consumption in order to achieve its functional needs, but also in need of psychological nature for the apparent personal satisfaction caused by the influence of the media as a life goal and trend. Planet Earth is on the challenging task of survival due to a large amount of waste and pollution caused by the actions of all mankind, while the power of change lies in the change of consciousness by knowing the problems and the possibility of solutions, by each individual. The aim of the project is to encourage awareness of changes in the domain of fashion in order to preserve the environment and protect the future of planet Earth from excessive production, consumption, and rejection of clothing.
