Short description

This project is positioned within the theoretical concept of knowledge-intensive innovative entrepreneurship (KIE) and investigates the role of creative and aesthetic knowledge for sustainable development in the fashion industry. In doing so, this project shifts focus from that of previous research, which primarily has looked at the production chain relative to sustainability. This project instead focuses on the actual fashion designer, and how their varieties of knowledge, rooted in higher education, can be used for artistic innovation.
