MISSION STATEMENT

In the past year a cataclysm has occurred- people are now extremely conscious of the importance of representation and inclusivity. Yes, it really does matter! It's no longer acceptable for artists and creators to reflect a tiny segment of our society- the small minority which conforms to traditional ideals of 'beauty'. The fashion world is no exception, and to this day we've seen a push towards visibility in many areas of this global industry. To find out more about myself and my perspective on these issues, I've written a letter to you- the reader.

Is our excreta the future of sustainability in fashion?

Imagine a future in which our bodies could secrete their own clothes and accessories? For the designer Alice Potts this concept is fast becoming a reality- she uses bio-technologies to demonstrate how our body’s excreta could be the future of sustainable fashion. As fashion has long been considered an extension of the self, Potts creates garments that are an actual biological representation of the wearer. Originally published by FashionRoundtable.co.uk.
