Fashion 3D – A Masterclass on digital textile fabrication
„I seek people that are motivated to innovate, implement new technologies in their work and have the vision of how digital fabrication immerses in the current industry to transform it. In order to move forward from an idea to practice, I want to combine groups of thinkers, makers and scientifics.“
– Anastasia Pistofidou

The creation of fashion and textiles through use of digital technology is an exciting field where tailoring meets digital fabrication. Masters of Grasshopper for Rhino, a prime digital creation tool, use their skills to create real word objects with the help of 3D-printing. Traditional fashion designers bring new edges to their craft with the help of digital tools to create forms not possible before.
The masterclass fosters the dialogue inside the interdisciplinary team to get new perspectives on the matter. New sparkling ideas become reality through hands-on and practical work with machinery and systems.
