IfM researcher presents findings on Well Dressed report at Barcelona conference
IfM researcher Cecilia Malvido de Rodríguez was invited to present the findings of the IfM’s “Well Dressed?” report at the Techno Textile Conference in Barcelona on 6th July.
The conference explored over 800,000 years of textiles and fashion and examined the human and environmental cost of future fashion innovations and technological applications. Scientists, designers and academics gave presentations on topics such as truly waterproof, non shrinkable materials to nano-wearable non-woven spray-on fibres to create your own t-shirt and ‘Active’ dresses’ that move with electronic devices called mecatronics.
The “Well Dressed?” report lays out a set of proposals outlining how consumers could satisfy their needs for clothes and textiles with significantly reduced impact on the environment, while also offering new business opportunities to UK companies.
