Unmade is a global fashion software company driving innovation through customisation and delivering an end-to-end digital solution for on-demand production at scale. Unmade is working with some of the most innovative fashion, lifestyle and sportswear brands to foster a new level of customer experience through customisation and direct interaction with the product that is completely implicit to the existing production process. The business, started by Hal Watts, Kirsty Emery and Ben Alun-Jones in 2014, was born out of a desire to reimagine both the design and manufacturing processes within the fashion industry, so brands only make what is actually sold, resulting in minimal waste. The company’s cutting edge patented software was nominated for the LVMH Innovation Award at VivaTech in Paris, and in 2017, it won the Best Use of Innovation at the Drapers Digital Awards in London. Furthermore, Unmade was most recently named in Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies. Pieces from Unmade are now a part of the permanent collections at both The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
