Blog: Spray-on clothing becomes reality

Joe Ayling | 17 September 2010

A fashion designer in London is showing off a new technique for making T-shirts that could eventually lead to instant fashion.

Manel Torres, from Imperial College London, is using a mixture of cotton fibres, plastic and a solvent to literally spray onto his 'fashion victims', before it dries into a T-shirt.

"This fabric could be for the summer or winter," he says. "It depends on how many layers you spray."

The idea of spraying on a different T-shirt every day has its charm, but the technology is only at the catwalk stage for now, ahead of next week's London Fashion Week.

It will, therefore, be some time before we are all heading down to B&Q rather than M&S for our latest fashions.
