Nine projects - involving bespoke tailors to fashion brands to Yorkshire’s mills -have been selected by Future Fashion Factory for funding. The projects benefit from a total investment of more than £645,000 in new, industry-led research and development. The successful projects focus on challenges faced by businesses across the fashion and textile industry.

The projects selected include a digital system for enhanced accuracy and efficiency of the wool dyeing process by Abraham Moon & Sons, a process to digitally evaluate, relay and visualise the aesthetics of textile fabrics to users in a different location by Advanced Dyeing Solutions / Roaches International, digitising early designs from Leeds Industrial Museum to produce a ‘new heritage’ fabric for electronic jacquard manufacture by AW Hainsworth and Yorkshire Textiles, design of a modular mattress product by Deluxe Beds, and reducing the lead time on a UK made-to-measure suit from 6-8 weeks to 48 hours by Gieves & Hawkes.

“It’s fantastic to see the range of businesses working with Future Fashion Factory in response to their first funding call,” says Dr. Paul Meller, associate director at UKRI’s Arts and Humanities Research Council. “These pioneering partnerships between industry and universities will drive innovation in this vibrant and rapidly expanding sector and underpin economic growth in the region.”

Future Fashion Factory supports projects where industry partners and researchers at three academic centres of the University of Leeds, University of Huddersfield, and the Royal College of Art collaborate to solve real business challenges.

The second innovation funding call opens to expressions of interest on September 2, 2019. (SV)
