La sostenibilidad en los estudios de moda



Este artículo tiene como objetivo teorizar sobre la moda sostenible y contextualizar los principales enfoques teóricos. Para alcanzar este objetivo, en primer lugar, vamos a indagar cuándo los estudios de moda emplazaron su interés por el tema de la sostenibilidad. En segundo lugar, analizamos los principales trabajos que sí han conseguido relacionar el concepto de sostenibilidad con la industria de la moda y el consumo. En tercer lugar, presentamos la Teoría del Actor- Red (ANT) y la Teoría de las Prácticas Sociales (TPS), ambos enfoques nos ofrecen algunas vías fructíferas para investigar la relación entre la moda y la sostenibilidad.
