Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to develop a slow fashion design model using the house of quality model (HOQ) to provide designers an opportunity to improve the overall sustainability of an apparel product. Slow fashion is based on the slow food movement that supports the consumption of food that is good, clean, and fair (Petrini, 2007). The first part of this study involved identifying slow food themes and translating them into apparel and textile characteristics. Following this, the house of quality model was used to develop a men's outerwear jacket that was used to evaluate the effectiveness of slow fashion design model. The third objective involved developing a slow fashion design model based on slow fashion characteristics. The completed slow fashion HOQ provided actions that the researcher then applied to the developed jacket. To evaluate the effectiveness of the slow fashion model, Higg Index 1.0 was used to obtain a score that represents a product's overall environmental impact. The jacket developed during this study was assessed using this index before and after slow fashion adjustments were made to obtain a score that measured the improvements offered by the slow fashion design model.
