About me/ issues you consider important in ethical issue

 My name is Ya Ping Huang, I study fashion management with marketing at De Montfort in United Kingdom. I study the foundation course because I want to learn how to design last year. Unfortunately, I do not have some skills or knowledge connect with design. Therefore, I need to have the basic course the works during the process. After that, at once meeting, teachers think my design skills are not enough to do the research in the master degree, so I transfer my course before few weeks. I studied Applied English Department at the I-Shou University in Taiwan, so I touch the some basic design course and learn how to be an English teacher to teach element students in the school. For my opinion, I think most English course are useless and not necessary, only teachers teach us how to write the research paper is useful in the department. Then my parents want me studying English in the foreign countries, so I choose to study in United Kingdom.

For my opinion, I think the ethical issues are very important for the fashion occupation because designers create their projects will make the different pollutions during the process. For example, Stark (2011) states that “wastewater pollution in increasing.” Spencer (2013) points out that almost clothes contain some poisonous chemicals, such as toxic and hormone-disrupting, it will pollute the water, river and sea. Kalliala and Nousiaineu (1999) state that every fabric has different pollutions to the environment, not only natural materials; but also manmade fabrics. Therefore, designers should consider the materials which they select to make clothes. Otherwise, they need to think about what kinds of materials can substitute and have similar function.


About the ethical issues which not only including the environment or pollution issue, but also contain workers’ conditions and fair trade. Overton (2012) illustrates that most workers do not have their human rights; they need to work for long time but still poor and gain lower salary. Even their working conditions are worth, they might touch the poison chemical without and protect. For example, Burberry quits the cooperation with a company which make the bag in China because this company violate the contract of workers’ right.
 
        For concluding, governments, companies and people all have the responsibilities to reduce the variety pollution in the society for the environment.
