In late-August, higher.studio flew to Sweden during Stockholm Fashion Week for a Tech Bridge event hosted by the British Ambassador to Sweden and the Swedish Ambassador to the UK to showcase innovative and inspiring Fashion Tech at the British Residence.
The event was to highlight the two countries’ global leadership in technology and innovation. We were honoured to take part in a panel moderated by Sigrid Barnekow, Director of Mistra Future Fashion, to discuss the importance of technology in reshaping consumption behaviours and as a tool for sustainability. We were joined by representatives from Neue, Virtusize and Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
And to top off our Swedish experience, we caught up with our friends at Asket and Swedish Stockings - two Swedish companies pioneering new ways to produce our wardrobe essentials with sustainability and quality in mind.
