This dissertation argues that the historical assets of design, engraved in living forms of collective memory, can be effectively engaged in the service of the appropriation and promotion of slower modes of consumption as opposed to the dominant and systematic novelty mechanism of fast fashion. It proposes a heritage management strategy that emphasises feasibility and taps into existing socio- and politico-economic networks while suggesting positive changes in consumer behaviour.

Through a single case study on the development process of the Viking Line Grace passenger ship, the dissertation studies how design is integrated to complex and networked product development.
