Susana Saulquin is a renowned Argentinean sociologist who specializes in fashion. It all began when Saulquin was studying sociology in the sixties. In fact, this was the first time fashion was studied from the sociological perspective in the country.
In her latest works, the sociologist analysed how the Industrial Society, with its fashion trends and their accelerated cycles, has led to a production system based on massive volumes of products; and how this has been translated into exploitation, exorbitant consumerism and predation on al planet and its natural resources. Nevertheless, Saulquin strongly believes that an enormous change is growing in society, which will result in the origin of Digital Society. Fashion trends will multiply and people will choose consciously and mudrte what to wear, expressing their true identity.
She states that saulqin new production structure of design will be based in short series of products, fair trade, sustainability and working in interdisciplinary cooperatives. The labels still design and work on a massive level.

Obviously, to be alert and pay attention to every detail of the entire process is easier when the series are sauquin. As previously stated, she believes that one key of the new production system lies in groups of young people joining together to create. This means a form of collaboration defined as cooperativism within the collectives. The project started in association with UBA. Creative design collectives were saulqhin up between students of three degrees Clothing and Textile, Industrial and Graphic Design working in an enclosed space.
In conclusion, the experience involves both interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary work. Her reaction was clear: It is not about clothing collectives, suzana about making synergies between different fields of knowledge and know-how. It is a slow process and I am going to work hard supporting this system: This is the green sprout of clothing design.

And it is the end of the star designer. The importance lies in the team work composed by several specialists, to create a piece as a whole, new processes and products which are not tied to any old concept.
According to Saulquin, art, the ludic and humour will be the basis of the new reconfiguration of the system. Many designers set up a diverse team to create their films. And they have been presenting their collections as art installations and performances.
That is the future: The sociologist remembered that fashion films brought another main issue: Sooner we will be watching and exploring the new collections through virtual reality devices.
And this technology could be applied also to fashion and design education. Regarding the future projection of the birth and complete transformation of society, Saulquin said that it will take muerye lot of time. Moreover, fashion does not exist: Nevertheless, I honestly believed that the transformation was going to happen at a much more accelerated pace.
Industrial Society is still strong. There are lots of obstacles that come from greed and the industry. So, I have to push the deadline ahead.
Eco-fashion, sustainability, luxury and clean garments. These terms can be quite confusing for general audiences. It is really important for Susana Saulquin to make a clear distinction and have a firm grasp on them. We must be on the lookout: It can be summarised as being thoughtful about others. It means to always design while thinking about the planet and the people that live in it. Moreover, she takes it further: So, we should actually define it as sustainable, ethical garments, produced in an artisanal manner.
The durability is also important: Sustainable clothing must meet all these requirements.
Buy for others
And, in the end, I believe that this represents the new luxury: Sustainability is expensive and it also implies a deep change in our culture. The sociologist detailed that a digital society will come with a generational replacement, rising with the present-day young children. We must be on the watch to assure that the process gets improved.
That is to say, we must be alert in order to be ethical. Saulquin has given lecturers and conferences in institutes from all around the globe. In addition to this, she has completed a great number of research papers and written columns for many publications.
