Lasercutting Textiles Inspiration

I’m thinking about lasercutting and paper/origami for wearables use, so here are some images along that vein

A friend of mine (Alex Wolfe) did a big project last year with laser-cut origami wearables that I really loved, and there are some really cool ways to lasercut perforations to fold paper along.

John Brieger: Molding/Casting Inspiration

Uncategorized — Tags: , , — jbrieger @ 5:41 am

I’ve been working a lot recently with fashion and wearables as interactive performance, and right now I’m drawing inspiration from some molded/cast clothing.  Alexander McQueen and Jean-Paul Gaultier have done some great stuff with molding stiff fabrics and leather, as well as a few cast pieces.  (List of designers who have done molded pieces is pretty long, considering almost every leather piece is molded somehow).

I wanted to post up some work by one of my favorite designers, Iris Van Herpen, from her Spring/Summer ’11 collection, which was themed around the crystallization of water.  Most critics consider it her best work.  The collection features a lot of cast transparent resins, designed to look like exploding water frozen in time, as well as 3d printed pieces and a variety of really great uses of leather.


I can put up images of her work all day, but I think this is enough to give you a good general idea.  Also Google exists.
