Maha M. T. Eladwi ; Hassan, D Shimaa ; Shaker, Rania N 


Fashion is a collective cultural phenomenon generated by the individual but linked to actions of a very large number of garment designers aiming to create distinctive but similar clothes. Awareness of what clothes are common, contemporary, appropriate, is a universal part of human experience. The sustainable design approach adds the ethical and social dimensions to the product, in its manufacturing, use and disposal phases. It was achieved to a certain extent by using available materials to its ultimate usage, using waste material, recycling of the products, planning second life for the fashion product, slowing down the fashion etc. Different finishing treatments are available to get various effects, which add value to the basic textile material, which can be better solutions for sustainable fashion. Textiles and apparel is a term that encompasses a plethora of items from the apparel worn for protection to self-expression, items in the home including linens and upholstery. The main idea is to develop more sustainable and responsible designs. This paper is not just about recycled textiles but about fashion, recycling, upcycling, adding value and uniqueness by the resulting one-of-a-kind design available to purchase in any retail store. Create six draping designs treated with soil release finishing usage as sea side clothes.
