Ongoing Research

Nefeli’s doctoral research is deeply informed on current and relevant issues that affect society and the field of fashion. With the working title “Sustainability in a post-pandemic era. Onshoring and Reshoring in the fashion industry” this upcoming project will be a case study focusing on the possible effects of bringing the manufacturing and sourcing of fashion back to the West. With reshoring and onshorring expected to grow after the pandemic, it is important to examine how this can be applied to European and American fashion companies.
