Lu Dai is a London based designer, who graduated BA from Beijing institute of fashion technology in accessory&footwear design and MA fromLCF in footwear design.
MA project: ’ Shoe Farm’ － the future shoe factory?
How can biotechnology（mushrooms) be used to grow shoes in order to reduce the environmental pollution of shoe production?
This project aims to challenge the concept of fast fashion and fashion consumption through exploring the idea of slow fashion in the form of growing footwear in order to inspire and arouse people's awareness of environmental protection.
To question the effects of fast fashion is to providing speculative designs. This will be achieved through exploring an alternative natural material, mushroom spawn, to realize a collection of bio-shoes and an installation of an imaginary future shoe factory to show the process as well as the final designs.
Please check my website down below, I am looking forward more opportunities for cooperation!
