2012 Imperitive...and Wicked!!

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, October 13, 2009
Yesterday I attended an amazing conference at the V&A hosted by BioLabs, it was a great insight into environmental issues from a more scientific and economical perspective, John Thackara hosted a question and answer session after each group of talks which really gave you an insight into what other designers thought of the tough questions and changes that need to take place in order for our planet to begin to repair and sustain us as humans for a long time to come...

I also went to see Wicked in the evening...It was an amazing stage show and the costumes were so well made and adapted perfectly for the movement needed for the dancers!! The whole set design blew me away and the singers were unbelievably good!!



Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
