Designer, consultant and academic, Anika earned a PhD. in Environmental Sciences where she specialized in systems thinking and sustainable fashion design practices. Anika’s research interests include investigating the sustainable design practices of micro and small sized fashion design entrepreneurs as a driver for sustainable prosperity. As a result, she has created the (re)design sustainable fashion design tool. Anika’s current research interests explore the role and application of bio-design within sustainable fashion. The goal is to augment the relationship between fashion design, nature and science where living organisms form an integral aspect of the design process. Anika enjoys sitting at the edge imagining and creating future scenarios of a sustainable fashion system, reimaging the relationship between wearer, clothing, environment and society.
