MA Material Futures students will be mentoring eight shortlisted projects submitted by schoolchildren to the Concept to Catwalk challenge.
Concept to Catwalk invites London schoolchildren to design a collection of clothing that reflects technology-led innovation in fashion.
The competition aims to draw on the rich textile heritage of east London and link fashion and technology. It will culminate next year in a fashion show held at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, showcasing the shortlisted designs.
The project is a partnership project between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Victoria and Albert Museum, Central Saint Martins and MyKindaCrowd. It forms part of the Mayor’s challenge programme.
