Outline:

Ministry of Supply is a clothing brand that produces technologically advanced items by applying technology used in sportswear to office wear. Based on research, the company found that previous clothing did not complement the skin and the way that the body moves, enabling Ministry of Supply to provide products that do. Using technologies such as thermal analysis, skin & apparel dynamics and innovative materials, products that are dynamic and effective were manufactured and now available to purchase via their website. Ministry of Supply focuses on a niche market of office clothing in addition to t-shirts and socks. 

My time at Loughborough really showed me that working with a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary team could lead to pioneering work at a research level as well as generating solutions that could be applied to satisfy market need.
