Part of a collection of bio-shoes, 2016.
This project aims to challenge the concept of fast fashion and fashion consumption through exploring the idea of slow fashion in the form of growing footwear in order to inspire and arouse people’s awareness of environmental protection.
To question the effects of fast fashion is to providing speculative designs. This will be achieved through exploring an alternative natural material, mushroom spawn, the realize a collection of bio-shoes and an installation of an imaginary future shoe factory to show the process as well as the final designs.
