Final Design: ‘FUTURE FASHION LAB’ programme (screenings, talks, exhibition and workshops)

Date: 8th November 2019 (Friday)

Venue:  THE ANNEX, The Mills

‘FUTURE FASHION LAB’ project is launched by 2019 Design Trust Grantees Kay Wong and Toby Crispy at THE ANNEX, The Mills- opening up their exhibition and ongoing programmes and talks, sharing various perspectives in creating possibilities and innovations for sustainable wearables.

Through showcasing good sustainable/social design and alternatives, we hope to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis. WASTE IS A DESIGN FLAW. While post-consumer waste is accelerated by poor design and quality, POST-CONSUMER WASTE can be minimized through creative design and quality construction. By bringing together designers, artists, inventors, organisers, catalysts, our main drive is a commitment towards sustainability, understood as a dynamic equilibrium between: protection and improvement of natural ecosystems and resources; economic productivity; and providing social infrastructure. – Design Trust Feature Grantee Fashion Clinic
