Description The invention of the Jacquard loom in the 18th-century century paved the way for computing and revolutionary change. Since then, code has evolved to enable new methods in design, visualization and production, achieving the previously unimaginable. Digital Visions for Fashion and Textiles considers how computing has reinvented image, material and structural processes, highlighting advancing 2D, 3D and interactive output. Digital/analogue fusions are defining new contexts for innovative fabrication. Twenty-two of the most forward-thinking practitioners are profiled here. Featured are household names, such as Hussein Chalayan, Prada and Issey Miyake, early pioneers (Vibeke Riisberg, Peter Struycken) and more independent, avant-garde individuals (Iris van Herpen, Casey Reas, Tom Gallant). Complete with a reference section and bibliographic information, this unique book is the perfect resource and inspiration for designers, students, industry professionals, and anyone looking for an exploration of how computer technology has permeated fashion, textiles and related digital sectors. Includes profiles of 22 designers at the vanguard of these developments: Savithri Bartlett • Basso & Brooke • Daniel Brown • Hussein Chalayan
