Fabrican Spray on Clothing: The Future of Clothing Design

"Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable."Donna Karan

Imagine waking up, not stressing about picking out a new outfit, but simply picking up a spray can and designing a garment in a couple of minutes.
Well with Fabrican, this dream has become a reality. 

Fabrican released a non-woven spray fabric that can be sprayed on the body, taken off, washed and re-worn in hundreds of new ways. This new way of designing has simply been put into the hands of designers and now even the common people. 

I had never heard or seen such a thing until this morning when I was searching through various fashion articles and noticed a title that caught my eye about spray on fabric. This phenomenon, new to me, is not so new to the fashion world as the company debuted in 2003. 

The fabric is formed by the cross-linking of fibers, which adhere to one another, to create an instant non-woven fabric that can be easily sprayed on to any surface. Its properties can be tailored to meet the needs of each user.

A little taste of Fabrican History:

  • 1995 - 1997 Manel Torres conceives the idea for Spray-on Fabric whilst studying for his MA in Fashion Women's Wear, Royal College of Art, London.
  • 1998 - 2001 Manel Torres obtains his PhD for Spray-on Fabric at the Royal College of Art and has a patent filed for this technology. During his PhD research, his work was supervised by Dr Susannah Handley (Royal College of Art) and Professor Paul Luckham (Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London).
  • 2003 Manel Torres founds Fabrican Ltd.

The founder of this revolution in fabric design, Manel Torres hopes to see this fabric used in the medical industry as well. The spray-on fabric is completely sterilized and offers a breathable fabric that can manipulated to make casts and sterile gauze. 

Many other uses include cloths, wipes, instant sponges, mops and even use in the design and automotive industry. 

This inventive new design tool has gone from spray can to catwalk as showcased in a Fabrican spray-on couture collection. 

Who knows, maybe in the near future Fabrican spray on clothing will arrive in clothing stores across the country.

What do you think? Would you wear Fabrican clothing? 

You could be the inventor of a new design.
