"The fashion and shoe industry function as a system. A system is a set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole. Due to this interdependence it might seem that the system is impermeable. In order to innovate and / or make the industry more ecologically sustainable the system and designer's roles requires rethinking".
