The recently created kinematics dresses blew up all over the internet over the past year and many museums including MoMA are exhibiting the dresses. The Kinematics project focuses on a blend of fashion ethics, customization, generative design, futuristic fashion technology and 3D printing. I admire the team’s attitude towards discovering a new way to introduce fashion design: through technology and printing instead of cheap labour in struggling countries. I suppose the algorithms used to create it are an intricate system intertwining a body scan and generative patterns. The creator team’s artistic sensibilities are tied in with this project clearly because they are interested in revolutionizing the fashion industry and to explore a new method of making wearables for the future.
