Continuum: user-generated fashion

Posted by Arseny Vesnin on 06 04 2011 15:09 · in Digital Art, Fashion, Portfolios, STAFF PICKS


Continuum is a user-generated fashion collection designed by Mary Huang. We can call it a computational couture. It is the application of interactive technologies for bespoke design.

In short, an 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.
