Fashion Designer Karin Vlug (r.) and Industrial Designer Laura Duncker (AMFI) work together on research project Smart Fashion Production. Developing a new fashion production system beyond traditional methods such as pattern making and sewing. Designs will be based upon personal three dimensional bodyscans for garments with a perfect fit. The production will be directly in 3D and therefore without left over material or extensive handwork. Karin’s research started in september 2014 as a KIEM project, she worked as a concept developer for Prof. Jose Teunissen. Now Karin and Laura are working with ArtEZ, CoE Future Makers, AMFI, ACIN, Modint, Maan R&D, Sizing Science and Optimal Forming Solutions.
