The Digital Anthropology Lab, University of the Arts, London College of Fashion, is an emerging research centre to develop a new way of making smarter with technology for a better human experience. We work across industry and academia through the lens of fashion and tech.

The Digital Anthropology Lab, London College of Fashion, experiments with artefacts, communities, consumption and making in the digital space, using 3D printing, body scanning, code and electronics. We focus on an experimental approach to digital anthropology, allowing us to practically examine future ways in which digital collides with the human experience. We connect commercial partners to leading research academics and graduate students, exploring seed ideas for fashion tech.
