DAY NINETEEN – (19th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 27, 2010

*I was at the MAS Design Centre again today, it was nice to have a little time to reflect upon my findings in-between meetings with really interesting people in the company.

* I was able to talk to the people who are undertaking a project to assess the carbon footprint of a number of undergarments – it sounds fascinating – and I hope they progress the findings and seek alternatives to lower the carbon emissions as much as possible.

* In the afternoon I was able to talk to the Health and Safety Compliance Manager who informed me of the different regulations enforced at factories, minimum wage brackets, monthly hours and overtime regulations and suchlike!


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.
