In conversation with Hannah | Navigating tech industries as a fashion native with Ashwini Deshpande
Updated: Mar 3
Hi everyone, Hannah here!
Welcome to the second session of In Conversation with Hannah. Today I'll be talking with Ashwini Deshpande a final year Fashion Design and Development student at LCF.
Ashwini has achieved many great milestones during her time at LCF, one of those being her extensive research and development of her Art-Z software. Art-Z uses artificial intelligence to amend garment patterns to reduce the amount of fabric wastage at a cutting stage without compromising the aesthetic of the designer.
In this month's session, Ashwini and I will be discussing how as fashion creatives we can work in partnership with the tech world. As a young entrepreneur, Ashwini started her journey within the fashion industry and has now moved into investigating new technologies and sustainability. After winning the ‘Accelerating the Future of Fashion’ contest by Microsoft and the FIA, Ashwini was invited to the Microsoft headquarters in WA, USA and to their campus in Silicon Valley, CA to work with experts on furthering her idea.
