Produced by home-appliance manufacturer AEG in collaboration with award-winning production company House of Radon, the film explores the changes that the future holds for fashion, mainly through the perspective of four innovative companies: Studio XO, a fashion and technology company based in UK, Patagonia, a company that is well known for its strides towards a more sustainable clothing industry, Adidas, and BioCouture, a design consultancy firm in London that seeks to grow biodegradable clothing using cellulose producing microbes. Another interesting company included in the film is the Yeh Group, a company that developed a way to dye clothes without water.
