I first came across this research from Forum for the Future at the Fashioning an Ethical Industry Conference two years ago. They've continued to develop with project, run in partnership with Levi Strauss & Co and London College of Fashion, and have now launched educational resources for students and teachers.
Fashion Futures 2025 is designed as a call to view the future of the industry; to designers really get thinking about how the industry is going to evole and the part sustainability will come to play.
It involves the generation of four potential scenarios of the fashion world in 2025, four outlooks generated by looking at trends as they are today and created in collaboration with industry insiders and through indepth research. The idea is not to dictate or predict exactly but to explore the potential for development and to inspire and inform the next generation of designers.

Alongside their original project there is now a YouTube Channel with videos exploring issues of fashion, sustainability and climate change.
