The Next Wave is Coming: Meet our New Fashion Tech Accelerate Businesses

The future of fashion is looking sustainable, stain-free and street-style chic according to our latest FashTech Accelerate businesses. For the third round of our residential programme, we have selected three diverse businesses, each of whom provide a unique added-value to UK’s ever-adapting fashion landscape.

Joining us on-site at our Mare Street premises for an initial six-month period are:

INDUO, a business producing cotton shirting fabric with patented technology that repels stains and perspiration, reducing the need for excess dry-cleaning and virgin fibre production.

Petit Pli, an alum from our pioneer program, Petit Pli creates advanced technical children’s clothing pleated in such a way that they can grow bi-directionally to custom fit a range of sizes.

All Eyes, a fashion trend forecasting and consultancy, capturing 100% authentic street style content to amplify the consumer voice to leading brands and retailers.

Through our tailored, strategic and holistic support, we are excited to see how these businesses scale and continue to innovate their brands, products and services.

Natalie Grogan and Lucas Shorvon, co-founders of All Eyes state, “[we are] very excited to progress through the next stage of our journey as a company with the guidance of CFE. As we are currently focusing on growing the company by raising investment, bringing the product to market and increasing our client base, we’re eager to utilise the services and advice available to us, to gather crucial feedback from the mentors at CFE who know the industry inside-out.”
