Wired UK asked designers where fashion is headed. Helen Storey, Professor of fashion and science at The London College of Fashion answers:
The future of fashion is one where science and technology help to tackle problems such as monitoring health and detecting diseases. Scientist Tony Ryan and I are developing Catalytic Clothing, which harnesses the power of a catalyst through the laundry process to deliver technology to the surface of our clothing that can purify air that we breath.
