Neo-Couture: Development of user-centered methodologies for AI assisted bespoke craftsmanship for couture fashion

The project challenges us to rethink the ways in which we approach innovation in textiles for fashion.
Built in the digital realm using artificial intelligence, and positioning nature as our protagonist, this project investigates a future materials landscape where binary code meets biological code.

• Can the digitised material of Neo-Couture assist and advance the immediate construction systems of the 4th industrial revolution?
• Can cloth be created with simultaneous realities in both the digital and physical domains through the exploration of artificial intelligence from a design-led perspective?
• Will this new way of approaching bespoke fashion enable a new design freedom and aesthetic through the use of computational materials?
