IT Pieces by flora miranda
individualized hybrid fashion
Online user behavior directly influences the appearance of the knitted garment and thus creates an interaction between the individual's online-activity and the independent design tool.
There are several IT Pieces planned.
The configurator is based on fashion photographs and incorporates a 3D overlay realized in WebGL using ThreeJS. Generated textures are applied onto a 3D mesh to visualize custom contents.
The process of fetching and analyzing data is visualized in a realtime 3D animation made with ThreeJS.
The customization tool generates bitmaps that are then fed into an automated knitting process.
Being a collaborative work of many people the project is in constant flux. In the early production phase we tested various different approaches on logic and look of the customization tool.
Building a completely generated 3D visualization of garments helped us to find our way to the hybrid solution we ended up with: images with a 3D overlay.
