NEWS | 3D PRINTING AND ITS IMPACT ON SUSTAINABLE FASHION

3D printing has made remarkable progress in the past few years, from 3D pens to printing and implanting a human skull and even a kidney. However, it seems that despite all this, the clothing industry has been lagging behind until now. The first high profile 3D printed clothing project was by design studio Nervous System. They created a dress with the ability to move like real fabric using a software called Kinematics, which allows the designers to use origami-like techniques to print a structure composed of triangular shapes with varying sizes. They can then arrange the segments and add hinges to lock the structure together. However leading-edge the project was, […]

NEWS | THE OCEAN CLEANUP

About 8 million tons of plastic enters the ocean each year. Part of this accumulates in 5 areas called gyres where currents converge and at least 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic are currently in the oceans. This problem was the motivation for The Ocean Cleanup project, set up by a then seventeen-year-old Dutch engineering student Boyan Slat. He recalls his first diving holiday in Greece, where he says he came across more plastic bags than he did fish. He announced the possible revolutionary plans to build a way for the oceans to rid themselves of plastic with minimal human intervention at a 2012 TEDx talk. Instead of going after the […]

NEWS | CLOTHES THAT CHANGE COLOUR

“Algaemy” aims to replace hazardous chemicals in clothing with environmentally friendly single-celled organisms. Algaemy is an analogue textile-printer which produces its own (surprisingly fast-growing) pigment. A wide color palette from different shades of blue, green, brown and even red derives from various species of microalgae. When it comes to chemical and water use, the textile industry is inherently unsustainable. In a report conducted by Greenpeace, it was found that approximately 25% of chemicals manufactured globally are applied in the textile industry. It also revealed the startling amount of hazardous chemicals in children’s clothing from major retailers around the world. Berlin-based design studio Blond & Bieber founded by Essi Johanna Glomb […]

BLOG | JASMINE’S INTERNSHIP AT RUBYMOON

I started working for RubyMoon last summer for my third year intern placement. During the placement I was involved in pattern cutting, toiling and technical flat drawing ready for the up and coming collection. Following the development of the new collection was an interesting journey, learning about the importance of every design and fabric detail along the way. Not only was Jo committed to following the ethos of the brand, by sourcing all fabrics, trims and manufacturing ethically, but she was also dedicated to her target market. Focus Groups were held during the design process, in order to make sure that women got exactly what they needed out of their RubyMoon […]
