Biocouture: Designer Suzanne Lee on growing your own clothes
Suzanne Lee has developed a novel approach to fashion design – she grows her own materials. The designer came up with the idea when researching a book about how fashion would look in 50 years time. Using a recipe of green tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast she is able to ‘grow’ a material which she describes as a kind of “vegetable leather”.
