CONTINUUM FASHION – computational couture
Design label/lab Continuum Fashion have been putting interesting concepts for customisation together for a while now.
About a year ago they launched D.dress… What they say about it
“In short, the “D” collection is actually a piece of software. The D.dress app lets you draw a dress, turns it into a 3D model, and exports a cutting pattern to make the real dress, sized to your measurements. A laser cutter or plotter cuts the pattern out of fabric, which is then sewn into the dress. All the designs are unified around the theme of the little black dress, and the triangulation used in the software. This allows basically everyone to create their own innovative dress design.”
What a brilliant idea and the effect is pretty cool too! Not unlike the aesthetic seen in a lot of the origami fashion but much more wearable.
