Megan is an early career researcher undertaking a PhD at the University of Manchester. Her project “How many clothes are enough? – The right to adequate clothing”, will examine the current state of the fashion industry both from an environmental and social perspective. The interdisciplinary project will look at ways of increasing circularity in the fashion industry, whilst also exploring the fact that our unsustainable shopping habits are masking a wider human rights issue – the right to adequate clothing. By increasing circularity in the fashion industry and identifying key social and environmental indicators, Megan’s research will provide a meaningful contribution to the field, with the aim of developing a fairer production and consumption system.
Megan holds an MA in Fashion Cultures and Histories from London College of Fashion, and a BA (Hons) in International Fashion Promotion from Manchester Metropolitan University. She also has several years of experience of working within the fashion industry in London and Amsterdam, which continues to inform her research.
