Saturday 1st November: Lost Values

Yesterday I went to the British Council for an interview in the penultimate selection stage for the UK Young Fashion Enrenpreneur Award. I had a really lovely chat to fellow applicant Elena Corchero whose company "Lost Values" combines smart textiles and traditional craft techniques. She studied MA Textile Futures at CSMartins and specialises in solar wearable technologies. Here is one example of a fan that charges up during use in the day and by night turns into an ambient light for the home. Solar cells, resisters and LED's are wired in circuits, directly into the textile via conductive threads. Genius! To see more tricks up her techno vs. tradition sleeve, visit the link below.......
