The Business of Fashion (BoF) & McKinsey
As companies strive to be ready for market quickly and to test things directly with consumers, microfactories provide a fast and nimble option. Having microfactories will also greatly reduce waste — providing a much more sustainable option for the future and reducing the sheer quantity of clothing produced.

CENTRO in Mexico
In an age of climate crisis, questioning ‘who will make these necessary changes happen’ is more urgent than ever. That was the mindset which led our CEO and Founder, Lisa Lang, to Mexico as FashionTech Expert Adviser, invited by the CENTRO institute. Among conferences and workshops, she taught fashion technology designers and inspired the next generation to think about what are we going to wear on Mars and what’s next for the future of fashion.

Material Science

Vegan Leather Production
As a concept to proof how possible it actually is to produce alternatives to leather, we created a concept dress called K-Lapse. We used the SCOBY agent (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) that is fed and raised with a sugary organic tea. Through fermentation, a thick layer of cellulose is formed, which is later harvested, dyed and tanned in a way that resembles real leather. The vegan leather is washable, very comfortable to wear - and the production is scalable.
