Designer Bo Carter: why students should support sustainable fashion

‘Sustainable’ is a word which we hear every single day, and the idea of sustainability dominates our culture. So why is sustainable fashion such a hidden phenomenon? Living ethically includes thinking about the clothes which you are wearing.

What not to wear to lectures

It’s 8:40am, you’ve overslept and your lecture starts at 9. Hungover or not, your uni room suddenly feels like the most perfect place on earth and even £9,000 a year isn’t encouraging you to get out of bed. It’s happened to the best of us, the inevitable doom that this lecture is important and your presence is not just encouraged, but expected (which lecturer came up with the idea of passing a register round, really?
