Last week Outsider's Founder and designer Noorin Khamisani spoke with BBC South about the Plastics Futures conference and the role of plastics in fashion. In her role as Senior Lecturer in Fashion & Textile Design at the Univeristy of Portsmouth, she is actively working with students to ensure the next generation of fashion designers understand how to design with ethics and sustainability in mind. In particular here she highlights developing biomaterials with students in the module Exploratory practice, which she co-teaches with Dr. Lara Torres.
You can explore more of Noorin's research into biomaterials in fashion in an educational booklet she co-developed: The Fashion Kitchen.
