If someone told you they could grow a dress from a vat of liquid, you probably wouldn’t believe them. Suzanne Lee, Founder of Biocouture Ltd, is heading the world’s first biodesign consultancy firm, which brings knowledge from scientists’ labs into fashion production. Biocouture offers a completely new perspective on how we could manufacture clothing, accessories and sportswear in the future.
This is a method of producing fashion which is closer to brewing beer.
In the film, The Next Black, we meet Suzanne Lee in her London studio, where she's using cellulose-producing microbes to grow garments in a vat of fermenting liquid. Through research and working with scientists, she developed a process of growing microbial material in a mixture of green tea, sugar and yeast to create a completely natural, 100% compostable product. The material can be dried, cut and sewn together to make clothes.
Biofabrication could revolutionise the design and manufacture of clothing, footwear and accessories. Moving away from the demands on energy and water of current textile manufacturing to an engineered and optimised bio process. By creating materials from living organisms clothes could be produced without toxic waste, enabling a truly sustainable future for fashion.
Also concerned about the environmental impact of manufacturing, Patagonia asks consumers not to buy and rewards recycling.

We are not wearing organic clothes just yet, but we can make our clothes last longer by washing them gently, with minimal use of energy and water.
