Ever wondered who helped make your favourite shoes?
We’re guessing you’re not barefoot right now. Look down. See those shoes? Did you know that an engineer helped piece them together? And design them. And get them to you.
You don’t have to study fashion to help create clothes, shoes and accessories. The truth is that engineers actually play a huge role in the fashion industry, working across every stage of the process before your shoes end up on your feet. Your shoes might have been designed using innovative software. The soles may have been made out of a new material created from recycled plastic. A crew of robots could’ve assembled them. Supply-chain engineers would have made sure things got to be where they needed to be around the world. Whatever the role, engineers are enhancing the fashion industry in more ways than you can imagine.
Find out about the talented people behind the items in your wardrobe, and who are shaking up all areas of the fashion industry – right down to the raw materials used.
