As a fashion and costume designer I often lack access to the desired material – the raw resources for my designs. Many textiles are either unavailable or unaffordable. Digital technologies open up new possibilities for the production of textiles and the implementation of designs.
In a self-experiment, I explore the applicability of 3D printers and laser cutters for my existing collection. Exploratively and experimentally, I highlight the potential of various production processes. An exemplary top demonstrates the acquired knowledge as a collection of applied methods. As a result of my research, I illustrate what technical possibilities exist today, how they can be implemented, and where the potential lies in the combination of traditional craftsmanship and digital methods.
