  Kirsten Scott is a designer and practice-led researcher, whose work explores the modernisation of craft traditions for sustainable, luxury fashion, and argues the importance of the hand made and of indigenous knowledge systems  in a technology driven industry.


She has worked extensively in Uganda on fashion–related development projects, navigating ethical concerns, the legacies of colonialism and the realities of the fashion market. Her methodology as a designer and researcher has become increasingly holistic and multi-disciplinary, concerned with fashion’s potential in benign design. Her practice adopts a slow approach that stands in opposition to the orthodoxies of speed and growth.
