Bringing fashion design into the 21st century
Mark works with a team of computer scientist and engineer based in Sydney and in Switzerland to create algorithms that can take 3D scans and generate fitted garments.
Mark has also set up an open educational platform called Fashion is Science to teach the underlying science of fashion and how we can use it to avoid misleading fashion advertising.
Mark says most fashion design education is not based on science and STEM fields such as 'Industrial Ecology' that measure the energy and emissions of manufacturing clothing.
"Fashion is on track to use a quarter of the world’s CO2 emissions by 2030".
"We need people from all careers to act: lawyers, accountants, scientists and engineers will be just as important as fashion designers in making the fashion industry more sustainable."
