Fashion Trends in Professional Clothing

1. Sustainable Theme Colors


With the increasing pressure in the workplace, people are increasingly longing to get close to nature and experience the original ecological environment, and colors are also more inclined towards nature and sustainability. The forest and the earth are natural color palettes, with primary tones such as pine nut, shrub brown, and pumpkin that are close to nature and paired with artificial colors such as phantom gray and sky blue, in line with the lifestyle of modern urbanites who love nature and the environment.

2. Sustainable clothing materials

Environmentally friendly clothing materials have the advantages of producing pollution-free, biodegradable, recyclable, energy saving, low loss, and harmless to the human body, which can effectively reduce the pollution caused to the environment during the production process. With the increasing emphasis on health and environmental protection products, the promotion and application of "green" environmental protection professional clothing is imperative.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton is a kind of pure natural and pollution-free cotton. In agricultural production, organic fertilizer, biological control of pests and diseases, and natural farming management are mainly used. Chemical products are not allowed, and pollution-free is also required in the production and spinning process; Having ecological, green, and environmentally friendly characteristics; The fabric woven from organic cotton has bright luster, soft hand feeling, excellent elasticity, drapability and wear resistance; It has unique antibacterial, odor resistant properties, and good breathability, suitable for making T-shirts, polo shirt, hoodies,sweaters, and other clothing.


As cotton fabric is a natural anti-static material, cotton canvas, cotton gauze card and cotton fine oblique fabric are also often used in some work clothes and winter coats. The price of Organic cotton is relatively higher than that of ordinary cotton products, which is suitable for high-end professional clothing.

Lyocell Fiber

Lyocell fiber is renowned for its natural and comfortable characteristics, as well as its environmentally friendly closed production process. It not only performs well in terms of quality, functionality, and wide application range, but also has high strength and toughness, as well as excellent moisture management function and soft skin friendly characteristics. The clothing made of this fiber not only has natural luster, smooth feel, high strength, and basically does not shrink, but also has good moisture permeability and breathability. The fabric mixed with wool has a good effect and is suitable for the development and use of professional clothing.


Environmentally friendly production processes


Regenerated cellulose fibers extracted from cottonseed down have excellent moisture absorption and breathability, and also have the most prominent advantages in anti-static and high strength. The biggest characteristic is environmental protection, which is "taken from nature and returned to nature". After being discarded, it can be completely decomposed, and even if burned, it rarely causes pollution to the environment. 40% of the Asahi Cheng self generating equipment used utilizes renewable energy for power generation, and helps reduce CO2 emissions by utilizing waste heat and reducing heat loss. At the same time, production waste is reused as fuel for power generation, mushroom cultivation beds, and raw materials for labor protection gloves, achieving a basically 100% zero emission rate.

Recycled Polyester

The polyester fabric produced by recycled polyester waste is a new type of environmentally friendly recycled fabric, mainly consisting of physical and chemical recycling methods. The well-known method of recycling cola bottles into fabric is the physical method of polyester recycling, where the yarn is extracted from discarded mineral water bottles and cola bottles, commonly known as cola bottle eco-friendly fabric. The combination of recycled polyester fiber and cotton is the most common fabric for T-shirts, polo shirt, hoodies and sweaters, such as unifi fabric, where the polyester yarn is recycled and environmentally friendly. The materials recovered through physical recycling methods are also widely used in various clothing accessories.

Physical recovery method of waste polyester
The chemical recycling method of polyester refers to the chemical decomposition of waste polyester clothing to make it become polyester raw material again, which can be woven, cut and sewn into recyclable clothing products after being made into fibers.


Recycled Sewing Thread

Sewing thread is also an indispensable part of clothing production and production. Sewing thread brand A&E American Thread Industry's recycled thread is an environmentally friendly recycled sewing thread made of recycled polyester, Eco Driven ® Perma Core under certification ®  using Repreve ®), The colors and models are very diverse, suitable for various types of clothing.


Recycled Zipper

Zipper brand YKK is also trying to develop environmentally friendly recycled polyester zippers in its products, "NATULON ®” The fabric belt of the zipper is made of recycled polyester material, which is a sustainable and energy-saving product. At present, the fabric ribbon color of this product is slightly yellow, and pure white cannot be produced. Other colors can be customized for production


Recycled Button


Using recycled buttons made of various recycled materials, the concept of environmental protection is integrated into a series of product development. Straw recycling button (30%), abandoning traditional incineration method and using a new treatment method for recycling to avoid environmental pollution; Resin fragments are recycled and made into resin boards, which are processed to form resin buttons. Recycling waste paper products into buttons, with a paper powder content of 30%, good toughness, not easy to break, and reducing environmental pollution.

Recycled Packaging Bags

Plastic packaging bags are an indispensable component of many products, ensuring product distribution efficiency and delaying product shelf and storage life. At present, the conventional treatment methods for discarded plastic bags are recycling, burying, and incineration. Undoubtedly, recycling and reuse is the most environmentally friendly treatment method. In order to prevent garbage from being landfilled or incinerated, recycle it on Earth, and reduce excessive energy exploitation, all humanity is advocating the use of recycled materials. Especially at present, environmentally friendly products are the preferred choice for shopping and consumption. As an essential packaging bag for products, recyclability is imperative.


Sustainable Clothes Design Design

In the design process, we adopt four types: zero waste design, slow speed design, emotional endurance design, and recycling design, aiming to improve the service cycle and value of clothing and reduce resource consumption.

Zero waste clothing design: There are two main methods. Firstly, in the clothing production supply chain, strictly follow the method of maximizing utilization to layout and cut fabrics, reducing waste while also saving costs; The second is to innovate the layout, such as designing a one piece layout to maximize the utilization of the fabric. If unavoidable waste is generated during the cutting process, it will be considered to be made into various decorative accessories, rather than being directly discarded.

Slow design: aims to create high-quality products that are resistant to dirt or easy to clean, with high comfort, and extend product life and deepen product satisfaction through subsequent repair and repair services. Biomimetic design and simulation experiments are the main application methods of slow design. The former learns from the morphological characteristics and functional structure of the natural environment to optimize the product, while the latter imitates real objects, behaviors, and environments, Develop the optimal sustainable design solution.

C Emotional Endurance Design: Based on the designer's deep understanding of consumer needs and values, design products that are meaningful to the user for a long time, making them less likely to be discarded. There are also semi-finished designs, detachable designs, and open-source fashion designs, allowing consumers to become active creators, creating personal memories and obtaining satisfaction, and deepening emotional connections with clothing.

D Recycled clothing design: mainly including reconstruction and upgrading. Restructuring refers to the process of redesigning discarded clothes and making them into clothes or pieces, which can not only be recycled, but also conform to the trend of development. Upgrading and rebuilding refers to recycling textile waste before consumption and producing products with higher value to save a large amount of resource costs. For example, waste materials are transformed by technologies such as crocheting, splicing, decoration, hollowing, and the value of waste materials is reassessed.
