This London Fashion Week, which takes place from 14th-18th September, sees the launch of the new Fashion & Textiles section on the Future Morph website. You can explore the career opportunities combining science and fashion, from textile technologists to fashion photographers and footwear designers, science exists behind all of your favourite garments and you could become a part of it.
We have entered an era where we are able to develop our own wardrobe of fragrances depending on our mood, fabrics can be made out of old plastic drink bottles, and new technologies are being used to integrate natural inspect repelling agents into our clothes. Future Morph has been working with a range of fashion designers, organisations and businesses in order to bring this content to life, including Rainbow Winters, Camira Fabrics, Helen Storey Foundation, Heriot-Watt University and MzTEK. Funding was provided by the Drapers’ Charitable Fund.

THE LIVING MAP: An online experiment in sharing, co developing and valuing cross-disciplinary research, through the arts and design, around the world.
So far (as part of tracking the global interest in the Catalytic Clothing Project) this has constituted a first attempt – a ‘digital sketch’ – of a potential new tool for Arts and Design Universities the world over to share their research ideas, have them valued (or not) by a global audience, and explore further potential for sharing the co-creation process of new ideas with the public at large.
A brainstorming session to discuss development of the tool will take place on:
27th September from 15:00 – 17:30 at CSM Kings Cross
In attendance will be a number of external organisations/individuals who are all successful in the online world as well as key members of UAL willing to lend their expertise to discussion.
We would also like to include two suitable students from UAL: these individuals would need to have the ability to build on ideas and interact, with an interest perhaps in the visualisation of data or information, connecting up the world of ideas online or the co-creation process. All that is required of participants is that they lend both their enthusiasm and inspiration to the engaging discussion, making the most of an opportunity to contribute ideas within a welcoming forum. This need not be one-off as there may be opportunity to remain involved in this deliberately structured ‘cross-generational’ approach to developing projects beyond academia and for the ‘real world’.
Further information on the project so far is available from the Living Map film available here.
If you would like to be involved, please email Rebecca Mallinson email@example.com by Friday 17th August 2012 explaining your interest and why you would be a suitable candidate. If you have any questions, you can contact Prof Storey directly via her twitter. Please note that you must be a student of the University of the Arts London in order to participate.
