London College of Fashion
and the University of Sheffield
, along with their partners and supporters, present 'Field of Jeans, an art-fashion installation which engages the public with Catalytic Clothing
, a partnership that brings together the worlds of fashion and science and asks the public to join the campaign for clean air; giving them the opportunity, at this early stage, to shape the technology that has the potential to transform our lives.
Employing existing technology in a new way, Catalytic Clothing seeks to explore how clothing and textiles can be used as a catalytic surface to purify the air we breathe.

This project is the creation of Professor Helen Storey MBE
and Professor Tony Ryan OBE
who are unlikely collaborators. Helen is a practising artist and designer at London College of Fashion and Tony is a scientist from the University of Sheffield; from the moment they met they realised that combining the worlds of fashion and science would produce extraordinary results.
Previous projects include the groundbreaking Wonderland
project which has now been seen by over 11 million people worldwide.
