Digitoile is a collaborative project which investigates the role of digital technologies in the design and fabrication of bespoke fashion. Conceieved as a different, more intimate approach to design, the project incorporates 3D scanning into the design process as well as a tactile interaction between fashion designer and customer. Culminating in a method which is more memorable for the customer as well as being more efficient in terms of prototyping, garment construction and material usage.
The project is heavily informed by existing working methods in fashion design as it is important to retain a blend of technology and artisinal craft. We use those exisiting methods as the foundation to a more digitally influenced appraoch to bespoke design.
