In this presentation I will discuss the key insights from my practice-led PhD. Through re-examining laundry as a social practice the research develops a series of design provocations to challenge the organisation of laundry practices, and by extension the frequencies and processes in which laundry is carried out. It highlights that understanding laundry as a social practice opens a space to reconceptualise design, laundry behaviour and sustainability. This provides an alternative lens from which to view and develop design theories and practice for sustainability in fashion.
