Virtual Fashion Design
Our lives are lived more in the digital world by the minute, yet our representation of ourselves has not been very creative. Fashion is still a very physical thing and an extremely pollutive industry, so why shouldn’t we dress ourselves more in the digital world? The Fabricant researches the way we will dress our future selves, will we still have bodies at all? We want the freedom of expression, without harming the planet. We should be able to dress ourselves, wasting nothing but data and exploiting nothing but our imagination.
Amber Jae Slooten is a fashion designer and works with the body, animation and digital fashion design. As the first to graduate with a full digital collection back in 2016 her work always questions the way in which we will fit, purchase and wear clothing in the future.
She is a co-founder and creative director of The Fabricant, a digital fashion house that creates clothing that is always digital, never physical. Unconstrained by the boundaries of the physical realm, they create intriguing and seductive 3D fashion experiences of endless possibility.
