Along the textile cycles of growing, designing and producing textile surfaces, stages of use and the end of the life-cycle of garments and textile products, concepts of new design thinking are developing around the notions of body and space, questioning established views of linearity and output in the textile and fashion industries.
Through linking zero waste concepts to thinking multimorphic textile-forms, Dr. Holly McQuillan explores new ways of thinking and making around fashion and architecture in constructed textiles, focussing on weaving. The body, fashion and sound: Vidmina Stasiulyte’s research focusses on how sound – as primary and different from vision – opens up possibilities for a more democratic and inclusive fashion. Sonic perspectives as the foremost aspects of thinking and designing fashion will generate new and unfamiliar ways of clothing the body and clothing space.
Nussara Tiengkate and Jitra Dungsan are investigating ways of a wholesome and generation spanning way of life, facilitated by textiles and based on community thinking and local and textile wisdom. They show that textiles are important social activators that connect people and places.
Transparency in the circular textile value chain with the help of marking and identification technologies is the topic of Melina Krohn. She will present her results of this quite young but dynamic field within the textile chain. Tobias Herzog will showcase an innovation for fiber traceability: The company Tailorlux integrity solutions has develop a identification technology based on luminous pigments.
The symposium will be wrapped up with a panel discussion amongst the lecturers and the audience. The annual symposium GREEN CYCLES is supposed to be an on-going narrative and dialogue, questioning established views of linearity and output in the textile and fashion industries.
