For many years, researchers and designers have focused on answering the question of how fashion can be more sustainable; however, the fact is that fashion has become one of the most polluting industries in the world. The purpose of this study is to investigate and develop a consolidated knowledge-base and know-how to support and equip fashion designers in the design process, with a focus on Accessory Design. To achieve this goal, three research phases have been conducted, including (1) the Preliminary Research phase, to explore and describe the dynamics and factors affecting the implementation and popularizing Sustainable Fashion; (2) the Prototyping and Assessment phase, to develop and systematize the consolidated knowledge-base and know-how to support the role of design in applying and spreading Design for Sustainability in Fashion (DfS.F); (3) the Reflection phase, to present a retrospective analysis, generalize the results of the research, and propose the potential path for future research. As a result, DfS.F design methods and tools were assessed through participatory research, and their effectiveness was evaluated through a series of pilot workshops and courses, as well as projects in collaboration with stakeholders.
