Manchester Fashion Institute Innovation Lab
The Manchester Fashion Institute Innovation Lab is central to the MAnchester Fashion Institute's fashion technology research. It includes computerised fabric and pattern cutting, seaming with and without threads, numerically-controlled embroidery and 3D body scanning.
Anthropometrics, sustainability and the Circular Economy have been a long-standing strength with many live projects including linkages between 2D and 3D design, designing for reduced waste and reuse, developing novel biodegradable materials, providing a knowledge base for niche crafts, and addressing the challenges of recovering value from discarded textiles. Wearable technologies is an emerging specialism with a current focus on incorporating electrical stimulation to garments to enhance health and fitness. Recent work has focused on wearables made from textile materials.
