The Future of Fashion: Open Source Modular Design

How do you imagine the future of fashion? One of the latest series available in Netflix called THE FUTURE OF, is a docuseries that consists of short episodes (each around 20 minutes) that revolve around what the future of a particular item or topic will be, including the Future of Fashion. In the future we will all be able to customize and make our own garments and accessories at home. How will this be possible? One of the main critical points of innovation will be the change of mindset from exclusive to inclusive and Open Source, making it possible that everybody can have access to different patterns and designs that each of us can personalize and make at home.

From June 6th to 11th we attended the Fabricademy Bootcamp in Geneva, we had the opportunity to reconnect with the maker community in the European Union and refresh our knowledge on Open Source Modular Design, Vanguard Dyeing, Biomaterials, Wearables, Soft Robotics and Open Source Hardware.

🧩 This project is inspired by one of the most famous iconographies that are present in the main avenues of Barcelona at Paseo de Gracia, where hydraulic tiles are the main protagonists of the streets, which reminds us how Nature was the main source of inspiration for Antoni Gaudí.

🧩 Gaudi’s work is the result of an observation of nature, this being his great teacher. From the bees he adopted the catenary arch that they use in the hive, the hexagonal shapes of their cells and the virtues of collaborative and supportive work of bees.

🧩 Hexagons are one of the most used geometric shapes for very efficient and waste reduction constructions and that’s why I decided to use them to design the garment of the future modernist art lover.

🧩 For this project, I was able to give a second life to a beautiful pink leather that belonged to an old sofa belonging to one of the Onlfait Geneve designers.

🧩Main advantages of using Open-Source Modular Design is that we considerably reduce waste, by using tessellations that interlock and nest perfectly, in such a way that any fashion garment or accessory that we create doesn’t need stitches and become adaptable, customized, and even perfectly interlocked in 3D.
