PolyU and AELIS Couture forge innovative partnership for Fall/Winter 2024/25 Couture Collection

This Week


HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach Newswire – 28 June 2024 – The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is excited to announce its partnership with the esteemed Paris fashion house AELIS Couture (AELIS) for the Fall/Winter 2024/25 Couture Collection that was showcased during the haute couture week in Paris on 27 June 2024. Created by the legendary haute couture designer Sofia Crociani, the Collection introduces sustainable metal-coated textiles developed by PolyU, blending cutting-edge technology with luxury fashion.

A research team led by Prof. Kinor Jiang, Professor of the School of Fashion Textiles at PolyU has developed an innovative textile technology by using metallising technology to place ultra-thin, nano-scale metal films onto textiles. Without discharging any polluted water or chemicals, the non-aqueous process results in textiles that are not only visually stunning but also sustainable.
