Visitors will walk through a three-dimensional installation designed by Cécile Feilchenfeldt to inspire creativity and explore the limitless possibilities using innovative smart materials. Many of the materials, the C.L.A.S.S. team will showcase speak to circular economy such as Re.VerSo™, Bemberg™ and ROICA™ by Asahi Kasei, Iluna Group and Tintex Textiles and many others that use technological breakthroughs to offer fashion materials that provide significant reductions in water during the manufacturing process.
