Will the Next Alexander McQueen Be a Biologist? (Brooklyn, New York)

February 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How is science challenging the apparel industry and who are the bio-tech superstars leading the charge? With life science technologies becoming more integrated with the apparel industry, we explore what’s next and how biology has become the new muse for fashion design.
