Gen Z leading the way in the ‘HABERDASHERY – Circular & Sustainable Design’ showcase at MTU 

MTU proudly announces the winners of this year’s ‘HABERDASHERY - Circular & Sustainable Design’ programme coinciding with global Revolution Fashion Week 2023.  
Irelands Knowledge Center for Carbon Climate and Community Action (IKC3) and the CIRCBIO research group at MTU are working with transition year students to advance their sustainability knowledge, develop their eco-design, social awareness and entrepreneurial skills to create new sustainable fashion products and services, embracing the business models of the circular economy.  
HABERDASHERY is a two-day design challenge where senior cycle students develop their research and design skills to create circular and sustainable business ideas for clothing, footwear, bags or accessories.  
The premise of this programme is to weave transversal skills in research, design and collaboration, along with knowledge of the EU and Irish policy landscape, into challenges which enable students to react to the climate crisis through creativity and empowerment.  
Over 100 students took part in the HABERDASHERY 2023 programme, which included looking at the link between climate change and fast fashion; the 9 R’s and sustainable choices we can make as individuals. 
Clothing brand founder, Paul Galvin, an Industry Ambassador for the HABERDASHERY programme, spoke to the students about the importance of storytelling for inclusion in branding, and technological and social innovations within the fashion industry, such as bio-based and renewable materials and circular business models.  
130 TY student participants attended an awards ceremony at Kerry Sports Academy, MTU to receive their certification and prizes presented by programme facilitator Zoë Rush, with guest speakers Paul Galvin, Eve Savage and Dr. Helena McMahon – Director of IKC3 at MTU. You can see an exhibition of this year’s student projects at K-FEST in Killorglin on the June Bank Holiday weekend!  
There is a global movement around sustainability in the fashion industry with increasing attention on low cost high volume retail businesses from and environmental and social impact perspective. Consumers in particular Gen Z and Millennials who are hyper aware of the supply chains, human rights and social justice footprints of the fashion industry. This influences the value and attention they afford to brands which is hugely encouraging. I am beyond impressed by the levels of innovation, creativity and understanding of circular design and the most pertinent environmental and social issues in play as expressed in their innovations and designs. Dr Helena McMahon, Director, IKC3 
MTU wants to thank the staff and students from participating schools for their participation in the HABERDASHERY programme and continued engagement across the range of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) outreach programmes offered by the university.  
Participating schools:  
Mounthawk Secondary School, Tralee  
Killorglin Community College  
St. Pats CBS, Castleisland  
Causeway Comprehensive  
Transitioning to a sustainable way of living requires us, as citizens, to explore and co-create with each other to find what this shared sustainable future will look like. I see our role as IKC3 as building the knowledge and skills that can give others the foundations to holistically and creatively respond to the climate crisis in a way that is authentic to who they are, and the future they want to bring into being. Zoë Rush, Education and Outreach Manager, IKC3.  
Textiles, clothing and accessories are an intrinsic part of who we are and how we identify ourselves. The way that we design and produce these products also has a substantial impact on our planet, communities and the environments where we make, use and dispose of those products. 
In 2019, the European Environmental Agency published findings demonstrating textiles have the fourth highest use of primary raw material and water, after food, housing and transport. Of the 5.8 million tonnes of textiles that EU consumers alone discard every year, only a quarter is recycled and only 1% is recycled into new fibres for clothing with the non-reusable fraction being mostly downcycled into industrial rags, upholstery filling and insulation, or is incinerated or landfilled.  
Shifting textiles, materials and the fashion industry towards a circular model, is essential to inform how we design products to ensure that they last as long as possible and can be repurposed and diverted towards other uses at the end of their life. This paradigm shift away from a take-make-waste model requires technical skills that merge with social justice and citizen responsibility that promotes new business model innovation.   
Ireland’s Knowledge Centre for Carbon, Climate & Community Action (IKC3) is a research project examining and meeting skill gaps within industry and civic society to enable a transition to low carbon futures, led by Munster Technological University (MTU) and in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and University College Dublin (UCD).  As part of the Circular Bioeconomy Research Group (CIRCBIO) at MTU, IKC3 benefits from world recognised expertise within bioeconomy research, education, and the promotion of circular economy principles.  
If your school or business would like to participate in the HABERDASHERY programme please contact or
