DAY 5 (5th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010

*This was an intense day with amazing factory visits crammed together back to back

*First stop was the MAS eco-factory – it was so beautiful there and the people that took us round were amazing at answering any questions we had!

* For tea we had fermented coconut hoppers made into baskets and stuffed with caramelised onions and fillings which were amazing.

*We were then invited for drinks with Nike executives from across the globe who were there on a training programme –after a bit of dancing and compulsory karaoke we were definitely ready for our beds.


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.
