Skin II

Invisible to the naked eye, our bodies play host to millions of microorganisms. Optimal skin conditions depend on the probiotic bacteria that live on our bodies. Cosmetic products and fabric finishes can contain toxic chemicals, which disrupt the diversity of bacteria living on our skin. ‘Skin II’, in collaboration with microbiologist Dr.Callewaert, explores the benefits of encapsulating probiotic bacteria into the fibres of clothing. The encapsulated bacteria are associated with reduced body odour, encouraging cell renewal, and improving the skin’s immune system. Skin II aims to use what is natural on our bodies to advance the performance of clothing.
Rosie Broadhead is an apparel designer specialising in biomaterials in the fashion industry. A recent MA graduate from Central Saint Martins’ ‘Material Futures’. Her work explores the skin and interaction with clothing, and how science and technology will influence the future of fashion.
