During the February 2019 edition, Advantex organized a series of conferences with entrepreneurs, pioneers and specialists in new technologies that are changing fashion. On this occasion, the international exhibition dedicated to innovation in the textile and fashion industry showcased the new processes of creating materials using micro-organisms. Here is an overview.
The ArtEZ Centre of Expertise Future Makers aims an interdisciplinary research approach to improve or develop sustainable value chains in fashion and design. The Future of Living Materials project is an excellent example in which scientist from different disciplines (plant sciences, consumer behaviour, circular business models, cultural studies) collaborate with designers who are exploring the possibilities of biomaterials like algae and mycelium. In this round-table setting scientists and designers involved in this project will discuss the challenges to have real impact on the production and use of textile and clothing. (source)

INTERACTIVE CONVERSATION VIDEO
This is the first time I have seen a research project on biofabrication that combines fashion and product designers, scientists, master’s students from an University & Research Centre. I hope that this type of project will create similar initiatives in France.
