Sustainable fashion

In July 2011, the international fashion brand and store chain Esprit announces the release of the limited edition of dresses, tops, pullovers, and jeans developed in collaboration with three designers from the Royal College of Art London for September 2011.

It's the second time that Esprit and the Royal College of Art London are working together. For the FW2011/12 collection, the designers explored if fashion can be sustainable. Therefore, the graduates created pieces that fulfill the requirements of long-term usage by following a classical style with an artful twist.
