Everything that went wrong: challenges and opportunities in prototyping long-life garments in a circular economy

Session C.2: The Lifetime of Textiles II
18th September 16:30 - 18:30

Laetitia Forst is a multi-technique textile designer trained at ENSAD Paris in skills covering weave, knit, print and other textile embellishment techniques. Her practice explores the tension between technical challenges and creativity in sustainable design for textiles. Combining traditional techniques with new technologies, her designs explores the creative potential of juxtaposing contrasting materials and allowing for flexibility in the future lives of the material or objects, whether this be as modular textiles or fabrics that evolve through time to eventually reach an optimal end of life treatment in a circular economy. Laetitia’s ongoing PhD research project at the Centre for Circular Design at University of the Arts London aims to explore design driven solutions for incorporating ease of recyclability into textiles. The project takes a pro-active approach to developing alternatives to the unsustainable status-quo in the creation of blends through the use of design for disassembly, the design of products and materials that can be taken apart to divert their components from waste streams. This strategy is adapted to the scale of textiles and to the specifics of creative textile design practice in an effort to design waste out of our systems from the very first stages of materials creation.

She brings this expertise to her work as both an educator, researcher, and consultant, integrating a developed process based on her research for sustainable brand strategy to the areas of retail, hospitality, and corporate office design. Leveraging her background in Sustainable Design Strategies, Matheny’s academic research investigates the sensory experience of retail environments to create emotional connections between people, product, brand purpose, and physical place to forge meaningful memories and foster stronger relationships. Her current research project focuses in the translation of slow fashion principles into what she terms as “slow retail” experience design. Establishing a slow retail vernacular can nurture these relationships, redefining the purpose of retail to create a more environmentally and socially sustainable retail culture. Matheny publishes in academic journals and presents at both academic and professional conferences around. Most recently presented a paper title “Slow Fashion + Retail Design: Designing experiences to influence sustainable consumers behaviors” at the Global Fashion Conference in London.

Biographical Statement Dr. Keshav Parajuly holds a master’s degree in waste process engineering from the University of Stuttgart and a PhD degree in circular economy and e-waste management from the University of Southern Denmark. Following his master’s and prior to his PhD, Dr. Parajuly earned research experience from Palo Alto Research Center, California and was also involved in consulting and implementation projects around waste management and resource efficiency in Nepal and Bhutan. In his PhD work, Dr. Parajuly focused on the techno-economic aspects of e-waste management including reuse and recycling as well as the relevant organizational and legislative provisions. The PhD thesis also documented product and material flows in the end-of-life material recovery chain in order to identify the hotspots for resource losses and their relation to product design. Dr. Parajuly continued to work on circular economy in his postdoctoral research with a focus on business model development for reuse and remanufacturing of end-of-life products. Besides research, Dr. Parajuly has also been active in grassroots activities and knowledge dissemination. During his stay in Denmark, Dr. Parajuly founded and served as the president for the non-profit organization ‘Repair Café Odense’. Inspired by the ‘Repair Café International’ initiative and by the result of his own research (that significant fraction of the discarded items are reusable), Dr. Parajuly started the initiative with the goal of reaching out to the public in order to promote waste reduction. Since June 2018, Dr. Parajuly is a visiting scholar at SCYCLE as a part of his research project “Behavioral Change for the Circular Economy” funded by the Irish Research Council Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) COFUND Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme entitled CAROLINE – ‘Collaborative Research Fellowships for a Responsive and Innovative Europe’. The project seeks to explore the area of sustainable consumer behavior with a focus on electrical and electronic products (e-products) and the resulting e-waste. The project aims at bringing the behavioral element in the ongoing research on the circular economy for e-products. The research investigates the rationale behind users’ actions and the significance of user behaviors in product lifecycle and e-waste management, and explores possibilities of matching and influencing user behaviors through interventions.
