We conceived of this project back in April, launched it in June, and now here we are. It’s been quite the whirlwind ride. We’ll be back in a couple of weeks for season two, but the end of season one is the perfect place to pause and take stock. In this episode, we reflect on our goals at the outset of this project, whether we’ve made any progress, whether our goals have changed, and the important themes we’ve identified for further probing in season two.

This week, the links we want to share relate to how narratives shape our understanding of the world. Some of them relate to fashion and sustainability, some of them don’t. Nevertheless, each gives us pause for thought: in what ways does the absence of diverse narratives within sustainable fashion shape our understanding of what it means and how it should be done?
