Project: Building Fashion

Building Fashion course Oct 2011

‘Building Fashion is a cutting-edge course – the only one of its kind in the world – focusing exclusively on novel approaches to the emerging practice of fashion and architecture.’

Design in all disciplines is becoming more and more centred around digital tools. Previously very specific manual skills were prioritised, however increasingly digital tools are being learnt, skills that can be applied across disciplines, such as Architecture, Fashion and Industrial design.

With this in mind and having always had a interest for the body, textiles, and dealing in 1:1 scale, I recently joined the a AA Paris visiting school, ‘BUILDING FASHION’, which, used various Architectural techniques and 3D Modelling software to develop garments.
