BIO 50: Eugenia Morpurgo | The Fashion System

Bio 50 'The Fashion System' is a wonderful collaborative design project to rejuvenate sustainable fashion and textiles using materials local to Slovenia, Designers made a 'wearable' and then created a kind of 'recipe' for each wearable that then stimulates further research and extended design. In this case it raised awareness of a neglected Slovenian resource: wool. 
The video shows an interview with Eugenia Morpurgo, who was a mentor of the Fashion System BIO 50 team. 
This example shows the wonderful work created in Slovenia. The intention behind Bio 50 is that the idea is going to spread to many other countries to encourage and engage designers. It focuses particularly on more sustainable design and creativity from the materials readily available in the geographical location. Bio 50 also  re-energises local identity, tradition and culture  that has been eroded by globalised production.
