ACTAsia is part of London College of Fashion’s Collaborative Challenge unit through which, post-graduate and Master’s fashion students have the opportunity to collaborate across disciplines to address current and vital challenges affecting the fashion industry.
Each year, ACTAsia sets the brief for the challenge which is student-led and requires students to be motivated and proactive drawing on teamwork, design thinking, problem-solving, project planning and negotiation skills.
The briefs set by ACTAsia over the last three years have all been focused on encouraging conscientious consumerism across all generations:
- What are sustainable materials and how can we promote them?
- Looking at the FutureLearn course and what can we do to advance its reach
- How to engage with young people about the work of ACTAsia
It is also a professional platform that offers live engagement with:
- Current research and technologies
- Industry partners and alumnus
- Academic partners
in the realm of Sustainability, Diversity and Social Responsibility.
“Outcomes have been fascinating”, said John Lau (LCF), demonstrating the level of engagement in the briefs and passion for ideas from a new generation of fashion students all keen to immerse themselves in the subjects that ACTAsia actively promotes.
All exemplary work has been produced by students from London College of Fashion, UAL- PG Collaborative Challenge project.
