Shoe Farm by LU DAI

In a world that seems to want everything faster and faster, designer LU DAI wants to slow things down a little.

LU DAI has created a collection of “slow fashion” footwear the essentially grow themselves. The soles are made of a collection of bio-material (agricultural waste + mushroom mycelium) with a focus on creating new, sustainable materials for footwear.

“This project aims to challenge the concept of fast fashion and fashion consumption through exploring the idea of slow fashion in the form of growing footwear in order to inspire and arouse people’s awareness of environmental protection.

To question the effects of fast fashion is to providing speculative designs. This will be achieved through exploring an alternative natural material, mushroom spawn, the realize a collection of bio-shoes and an installation of an imaginary future shoe factory to show the process as well as the final designs.” – LU DAI
