Students fix for fashion has Future Space in a Frenzy

Loughborough University London students were winners in making fashion more sustainable at the recent Future Space Hack. Students spent an immersive day building teams, generating and analysing new ideas and pitching their solutions to a panel of expert judges from The Trampery’s Sustainable Fashion Accelerator.
