Using Knitwear Technology to Reduce Wastage

Kirsty Emery Thursday, 1 November 2018

Kirsty Emery is one of the co-founders of the revolutionary, award-winning fashion technology business, Unmade. Launched in 2013, Unmade was born out of frustration at the fashion industry’s stagnant approach to mass-consumption. Today, they create bespoke, personalised knitwear, on-demand, on an industrial scale. With an ever-growing team and research lab based at Somerset House, they are leaders in sustainable fashion technology.

"The fashion business is 1.4 trillion dollar industry. 10% of all the clothes made every year don't get sold and go straight to landfill - which is about 100 billion dollars of clothes."


In this video you'll learn:

  • How Unmade works.
  • How Unmade funded and grew the business.
  • Tips on business plans and team building success.
  • Their vision for the future of fashion.
