|About||Space Between is a thoughtful new way to design, make and use locally-produced fashion. Operating from Massey University’s College of Creative Arts, NZ.|
|Mission||To work together with a shared philosophy to bring about 'positive change' in industry. We work according two distinct but complementary strategies to design with the textile waste from the current system and to ultimately eliminate waste from industry by design in closed loop’ solutions.|
We are a fluid ecology of research lecturers, student employees both pre and post graduation and collaborators striving towards a shared goal of positive change in the fashion industry.
Space Between is a new green business model for fashion design which acts as a platform for social innovation and enterprise.
Situated in Massey University's School of Design, New Zealand we will address sustainability issues such as resource depletion, consumption and production by connecting university research and external partners.
Space Between is a bridging mechanism for students pre and post graduation to address issues of waste in industry while developing their entrepreneurial capability. We operate in the 3rd space where students / staff / industry (NZ Post, Booker Spalding and Earthlink) work collaboratively together to provide solutions.
