This Funzing Experience:

The fashion industry is an important global economy. In the UK alone, it generates £28billion annually and employs almost one million people in many varied professions. Even if we don’t consider ourselves fashionable, we all buy, wear and dispose of clothing.

As a result of its ubiquity, fashion is the perfect vehicle for making a positive difference, yet the industry has a poor reputation for social responsibility. In this talk I highlight the potentially valuable role that fashion can play in enhancing wellbeing at individual, community and societal levels and how psychology could be applied to bring about a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry.

Professor Carolyn Mair CPsychol FBPsS works with the fashion industry and educators through her consultancy http://psychology.fashion. As Professor of Psychology for Fashion at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, she created and led the world's first Masters programmes to apply psychology within the broad context of fashion. Carolyn has published broadly in scholarly journals and is frequently featured in press and other media. Her book, The Psychology of Fashion, part of the Psychology of Everything series by Routledge, was published in March 2018. Carolyn qualifications include PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, MSc Research Methods Psychology and BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology and Computing. In her earlier professional life, Carolyn worked as a visual merchandiser, graphic designer, dressmaker and portrait artist.
