This chapter provides an overview of the circular economy in general and specifically linking circular economy to fashion. While the phenomenon, fashion in a circular economy, is new and emerging, this chapter is an initiative to open some of its many layers, while not providing exact scientific knowledge as such. More so, it tries to show the complexity of this term while also providing some opportunities to change our linear way of thinking towards circularity.
