Be inspired by possible futures for the ways that Fashion Tech will enhance textiles and clothing, shape the world of sport and wellness, and transform the way we interact with one another and with the world. These four Fashion Tech research-creation projects, curated by Joanna Berzowska, were designed and implemented through collaborations across different research clusters and research labs.

  • what if you could grow bio-organic textiles in a science lab?
  • what if your clothes could generate electricity to power your mobile devices?
  • what if your clothes could vibrate on your body to send you messages and give you massages?
  • what if your clothes could infinitely change colour and shape?”
