Abstract: Climate scientists have identified the anthropogenic causes of climate change. The concomitant changes resulting from human action will likely usher us from the Holocene, which began roughly 11,000 years ago, into the Anthropocene. The ecological crises of the Anthropocene force fashion to reconsider its relationships with nature. Through an examination of community-based practices in Japanese papermaking, a framework can be developed for making and growing materials and forms that are contingent on relationships between local communities of humans and nonhumans. The Anthropocene calls for radical propositions for sustainable fashion design practices. In response, this study aims to develop a theoretical and conceptual framework for interspecies design in fashion. This dissertation found that two hierarchies underpin the unsustainable practices of the dominant fashion industry: the primacy of producer over consumer, and human over nature. Sustainable fashion research needs to address these hierarchies. This study showed that they are being destabilized by consumers who act as producers themselves and find ways to exert their agency over fashion’s supply chain through practices that value collaboration, openness, and transparency. Outlined in this dissertation are the theoretical and conceptual foundations for interspecies fashion design in the Anthropocene—a form of design that addresses the ecological negligence of the dominant fashion industry. This study provides a framework for nascent fashion design practices that seek to bridge the biological, social, and technological in the Anthropocene
