The paper discusses the practicality of fashion's present interest in environmental issues in the context of an examination of the industry's unquestionably major aspect, its relationship to sustainability. This paper aims to elaborate on the need for ethical thought to guide aesthetic needs without sacrificing current trends or the love of glamour, style, or couture. The paper will conclude with a reevaluation and possible resolution, grounded in the performative nature of fashion, to the query of whether sustainable fashion can be seen as an existing, feasible, and maybe successful means of addressing modern environmental issues. With the proliferation of cheap fashion and throwaway culture, textiles compete with plastics as the top contributor to our landfills. Can a partnership between the government, textile industry and consumers be achieved to take concrete and urgent measures towards creating a circular economy. India has put in place a number of legislative initiatives to safeguard the environment. The most well-known of them is the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, which sets fines for violating regulations on the release of pollutants into water bodies. In order to encourage sustainable practices in the textile sector, the Indian government has also put in place a number of laws and programs. One such project is the Sustainable Textiles of India program, which attempts to encourage the production and consumption of textiles in a sustainable manner.
