Why should we go all the way to Japan for natural fibres? Hinoki is a kind of cypress (its botanical name is chamaecyparis) which is grown in Japan because its pale, slightly aromatic and rot-resistant wood makes it an excellent building material. Its trunk can reach a diameter of one metre, and it can grow up to 35 metres high. Now Grado Zero Espace?s research laboratory has succeeded in extracting fibres from the tan-coloured bark which Feng-Shui experts agree have both therapeutic and insect-repellent properties. When mixed with cotton fibres and given a chemical-free wash, the fibres can be woven into a cloth and used in numerous ways for clothing and in the household. Because of its anti-bacterial properties and comforting feel, Veronica Bettini has already used this material to make children?s bedding quilts. Designed by Giada Dammacco, head of Grado Zero Espace?s design office, the Hinoki LS fashion line was chosen by Roma Design+ and featured at the IFAI Expo 2008, America?s leading textile exhibition.

    Science in its various forms has revolutionised the fashion industry. Its impact has been felt on all areas of fashion from conceptual garments for the catwalk to the use of high tech fibures and fabrics and the aesthetic of science.


    The exhibition is divided into three sections.

  • The Conceptual Laboratory concentrates on the use of science by fashion designers at a conceptual level. This will range from garments using the simplest of mathematical forms to the use of fabrics with a raised surface based on Braile and semi-living garments using biotechnology.
  • The Aesthetics of Science will look at fashion that demonstrates the impact of science as aesthetic. This will include Space, Cyborgs and Camouflage.
  • New Fabric Technology looks at the very latest in advanced textiles. Though predominately garments, some fabric lengths will also be shown in this area. Exhibits will include a spray on dress, garments made using three dimensional fabrics and one made using a three dimensional printing process.

  • GZE exposes the new version of Quota Zero Jacket, the Absolute Zero
