At its core fashion is a heavily industrialised manufacturing industry, yet the historic fashion capitals, London, Paris and New York have long since abandoned large-scale manufacture while still educating new designers. Jamer Hunt proposes new modes of ‘Post-Industrial Design’, but are these reflected in contemporary fashion practice? This chapter discusses the work of three emerging designers as a basis from which to explore whether changing digitally informed mindsets and a loss of material experience are bringing new fashion practices closer to Hunt’s vision, and what this might mean for fashion practitioners and industry.
