Eco-fashion literature ranges across topics such as the design process, sustainability, and various relevant indicators in fashion and apparel studies, such as the life cycle concept. However, no attempt has been made to merge these findings or investigate the relationship between sustainable design and the eco-fashion life cycle. This paper aims to provide an overview of eco-fashion design and several relevant factors to identify opportunities for further research in contemporary apparel design linked to sustainability. A systematic literature review was conducted, from the initial appearance of the eco-fashion design process and clothing life cycle up to articles published in December 2020, resulting in 163 papers. The study’s main contribution is to clarify the relationship between the eco-fashion design process model and three influential sustainability factors, including social, economic, and environmental.
