by unspun team
as 2018 is coming to a close, our team has continued to spread our excitement as well as obstacles in building a zero-waste apparel future with unspun.
from sharing as a leadership speaker, going to japan for potential collaborations, to podcasting at "fashion is your business", november has truly been fruitful. we are deeply motivated by the support everyone has on us and the future of apparel, and we strive to do even better in 2019.
check out what we've done, what we've planned for the year ahead and what we've been inspired by.
bain x hax digital boot camp
unspun was proudly invited as a leadership speaker on how we have built and accelerated in the world of digital transformation. from hax top techstyle startups, to the world's advice leaders from bain, it was a great experience to exchange insights and difficulties on building future hardware today.
not everyone understands or notices the complication with apparel sizing. achieving perfect fit across all genders and body shapes is not an easy task. unspun fit algorithm is transforming tradition with innovation. thanks to bain and hax, we are expanding communication to a key demographic for a larger impact.
trip to japan
we went adventuring in tokyo! unspun had the honours to interact with some of the most unconventional minds of Japan. speaking with technology-dedicators like Zozotown has motivated us to keep improving our innovation; whereas premium department store like 0101 has inspired us with their effortless retail designs.
the journey to japan had been a fruitful experience with exciting collaborations. it is wonderful to see how, despite speaking in different languages, fashion serves as the common language in between and bonded us all together.
we are very eager to explore the potential collaborations with the fashion giant of Asia! Stay tuned!

uniting global fashion brands on disruptive and sustainable fashion, unspun attended Remode in Los Angeles. it was an eye-opening event including a chance to podcast on "Fashion is Your Business", sharing about on-demand manufacturing, and exchange ideas with fashion brands such as Levi's and Lacoste.

inspiration of the month
pioneering architect: zaha hadid
earlier this month, zaha hadid architects and the eth zurich co-created a 3d knitted concrete pavilion. the prototype has shown to the world how additive manufacturing technology can be blended into our daily lives, and how the innovative architect has left her legacy in transforming and redefining design innovation.
zaha hadid had been an inspiration for us with her ground-breaking projects and perfectionistic attitude in her work.
we at unspun resonates deeply with her principles and strives for "zero inventory" with the same philosophy.
"i will never give myself the luxury of thinking 'i've made it.'
i'm not the same as i was 20 years ago, but i always set the bar higher." - zaha hadid
set the bar higher with us. let's strive for a better apparel industry together.
