Each garment was developed and produced using natural dyes and the latest sustainable techniques. Laser and ozone machines were used to replicate 'wear' and 'washed' looks, while water, energy and chemical consumption were traced with M&J Group's Start To Measure system. It estimates that the WGSN AW18/19 sample collection benefits from 30 per cent chemicals saving, 50 per cent water consumption saving and 50 per cent energy saving based on industry best practices.
The hangtags provided by Avery Dennison RBIS were also made from 100 per cent recycled paper and printed with soy inks, which have a softer impact on the environment, while the labels were made from recycled fibres.
"Sustainable collections often fail to reflect trend worthy design and, in doing so, miss the mark on consumer wants and needs. Many of our global customers are conscious of this and have been seeking our advice on how to bring WGSN's seasonal denim trends to life in a sustainable way," said Dio Kurazawa, denim director, WGSN.
"Drawing on the Eastern influences, tran-seasonal layering and modern classics predicted for A/W18/19, we demonstrate how to produce a line that is environmentally sound but doesn't sacrifice of style or substantially increase manufacturing costs. Going forward, we would like to see standalone 'sustainable collections' become a thing of the past and a socially conscious mindset applied across the board to create a 'sustainable industry'," added Kurazawa.
