New Zealand Fashion Week has provided our business students with the perfect opportunity to get out of the classroom and put principles of sustainability into practice.

Students in our Implementing Sustainable Practice course visited Auckland Central City Library yesterday, where they learned how to use vintage sewing machines to work with repurposed materials.

The sewing workshops are part of the library’s New Zealand Fashion Week events.

Business lecturer, Sanjay Sharma, said the visit allowed students to explore the three pillars of sustainability – economic, environmental, and social. It was also a good lesson in how to reduce consumption.
