Future Fashion comes to London

Last week we hosted 14 of the researchers who are part of our new research project, MISTRA Future Fashion. We had two days of workshops and discussions and heard from each of the eight different Projects within the consortium.

There is a group of social scientists and economists from Copenhagen Business School specialising in sustainable consumption; political scientists from Malmo University, who will be exploring the policy structures around making the fashion industry more sustainable; a group of fibre technologists who are developing a new sustainable fibre based on a viscose process and other researchers from Swerea/IVF and Konsfact.

TED ran a 'Speed Dating Workshop' for the group of researchers to get to know one another and to begin to explore and map the multi-disciplinary nature of the project and how we will all work together.

We are the design element within the project and will be using our TED's TEN to plug into the new research being generated throughout the project - creating new design concepts and garments.
