Is There a Greater Link Between Fashion and the STEM Industry?
What do you think of when you imagine fashion and the STEM industries? You might think of fashion and it’s link between science, technology, maths and engineering in the form of hard hats, coats and high-vis. However, is there a greater link between the fashion and STEM industries that we may not be aware of? Many young adults are looking towards STEM industries for typical career opportunities however, perhaps the fashion industry has more to offer than expected.
To discuss the relationship between the fashion and STEM industry, we were joined on the Daily by Ruth Povall, Technical Designer and Pattern Engineer and Quality Assurance Consultant and Educator and Lois Hennes Technical Author in the area of pattern engineering and Co-author of The Fashion Design System: Pattern Engineering for the 21st century.
