future fashion can promote sustainable lifestyle and wellbeing

FAAR is a platform dedicated to inspire, advance, and support the interdisciplinary future of the fashion industry, where new business models emerge through applied science and technology.

Based in Chicago, FAAR launched in 2018 with a series of events and workshops in the local area and around the country.

Currently, FAAR is curating a 2020 State of the Industry white paper on companies that are exploring issues at this intersection.

FAAR is available for event partnerships, animating workshops and panel discussions, or an informative presentation that looks at the shared history of fashion and aerospace, their mutual long-term interests, and the incredible possibilities of what could be if they proactively work together.

UPCOMING events

Fashion's Future: from the Mercury Missions to the New Space Age   The fashion and aerospace industries have been collaborators since the beginning of the space race in the late 1950s. Today, the privatisation of the space industry has given rise to a new space age, while as a society we struggle to reconcile our relationship with technology and the environment. In the fashion industry, this has led to a new wave of exploration, as designers and technologists pioneer the use of new materials and new manufacturing processes. The resulting work serves as proof of concept for new interdisciplinary business models for the fashion industry. This talk will connect the dots between the historical context of fashion in the aerospace industry, and the new frontiers explored through the work of designers and creative technologists today.   Monday, October 21 at the School of the Art Institute Fashion Resource Center
