The Digital T-shirt Project, by Mashallah Design
and Linda Kostowski
, is an interesting integration of fashion and technology. Using the data from three scanned human bodies, a digital pattern is created. The pattern is then laser cut into multiple pieces and then sewn together to create the final garment. The result is a origami-esque sculptural wearable.
What I love about the Digital T-shirt Project is that it questions the traditional paradigm in which clothing is created. The project is a nice poetic experimentation that uses data and 3-D prototyping machines to deconstruct the human body in order to re-construct a second skin.
Below are some process photos.
