Through a variety of projects, we work toward changing the fashion status quo. The projects start from many an idea, proposal, brief, or challenge and are led by our expert team. Our projects explore how knowledge exchange, education, and research can work in practice. Often collaborating with external organisations, brands, and institutions.
