The rapid development of fashion has somehow affected today’s environment. Apparel production and consumption continue to increase driven by fast fashion trends. However, it had caused several problems to the environment, basically economic and social issues. Thus, embedding sustainability in fashion education becomes crucial and highly encouraged. The objectives of this research were to: 1. examine students’ attitudes about sustainability towards sustainable fashion design curriculum and 2. determine whether sustainability attitudes can be developed from the sustainable fashion design curriculum. Data was gathered through qualitative open-ended structured questions. Fifty fashion alumni were selected as research subjects for the survey. The major findings of the research showed that attitude of sustainability is explicitly integrated into sustainable fashion design curriculum. This study proposed a conceptual framework that integrates attitudes of sustainability into sustainable fashion design curriculum. Sustainable design curriculum could enhance social responsibilities and sustainable development growth among designers, students and entrepreneurs.
