Researching ‘science and fashion’ I stumbled across a fabulous initiative that stylishly fuses the two together.
Descience is an initiative that plans to take the fashion and scientific world by storm on September 29th at the MIT Media Lab with their first ‘Descience’ runway show. The parade will showcase science inspired fashion designs by sixty one teams from across the globe, of which fifteen finalists will be selected to be featured in the final runway show. With monetary prizes up for grabs there is sure to be some fierce competition.
If you are lucky enough to be near MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) keep an eye on the Descience Facebook page for updates about the fashion show. The rest of us can get involved by heading to the voting page and voting for our favourite design for the peoples choice award (you have until September 26th to cast your vote).
Have fun browsing through the exciting array of science inspired fashion designs (who said science can’t be stylish)!
