KRISTINE SPEAKS: When I was in year 12, I had taken textiles all the way through high school and it got about to a week before application shut for RMIT. And my teacher was like, just apply. I was set to do science, I was going to do fashion at all. But then, a week before I thought, I don't want to give it up, and just had a go and applied and got in.

KRISTINE SPEAKS: Most of the fabrics we use now are actually created in 80s and before and not much solid material innovation has been done. Although, there is a lot to being worked on at the moment and it's just an exciting new field and it will really be one of the keys to creating a more sustainable fashion industry.
