Last week Catalytic Clothing arrived in Scotland for the Edinburgh International Science Festival.
Wearing a Vivienne Westwood gown inbued with Catalytic Clothing technology London College of Fashion Visiting Professor Helen Storey MBE posed alongside project partner Professor Tony Ryan OBE of University of Sheffield to launch the week’s activities.
Helen and Tony took part in an ‘In Conversation’ at the National Museum of Scotland with Professor John Shepherd CBE FRS about the motivation behind their collaboration and how Catalytic Clothing could bring about the reduction of air pollution in our towns and cities.
To demonstrate this compelling idea, which has global significance for the air we breathe and the reduction of harmful pollutants, a small field of catalysed bespoke denim kilts, produced in Edinburgh by 21st Century Kilts, were ‘planted’ alongside denim jeans in Saint Andrew’s Square.
