Stargazer

Stargazer Stargazer questions and predicts what the future of fashion will be like, with the help of the stars themselves. Astrology inspired prints created in collaboration with Berlin-based artist V Wolfe are transferred onto the garments using a laser engraving technique. The technology used explores the capabilities of the laser cutting machine and presents a more environmentally- and user-friendly alternative to screen or digital printing on textile materials. Laser cutting is not only very precise, but also makes it possible to create different kinds of see-through or almost invisible prints. For the showpiece, a woven fabric consisting of three layers

Ambience

AMBIENCE Engineer and fashion tech designer Lina Wassong seeks innovative ways of digitalizing the environment and the human body, always questioning how we will seamlessly connect and communicate with electronic components in the future. Wassong believes technology can accentuate the beauty of nature — that’s the message of the AMBIENCE skirt. Tiny lights twinkle like fireflies, while soft sounds of the woods create an idyllic atmosphere reminiscent of a forest glade at dusk. Digitalization of our society is often associated with detachment from nature. However, technology can also be used to emphasize the beauty around us. The AMBIENCE skirt has

Symbiosis

Symbiosis Lina Wassong’s Symbiosis dress is an homage to the beautiful natural phenomenon in which two species share the same habitat and benefit from each other. With the wearer and the integrated electronics symbolically connected, the piece is a combination of delicate design and advanced software technology. Through the seamless interface, the wearer can shift the microcontroller from „listening“ into „observing“ mode and watch the dress change as it reacts to the surrounding environment. Laser cutting and 3D printing with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) that allows high-resolution prints in complex shapes give the design its final touch.

Parallax Dress

Parallax Dress Berlin-based engineer and designer Lina Wassong first became inspired to explore the aesthetic aspects of technology while living in San Francisco, the capital of tech. Wassong’s designs seek innovative ways of changing the analog world into a digital environment. Self-learning systems and the integration of autonomous machines let us explore technology from a new perspective. Machines become more aware of their environment through artificial intelligence. The Parallax dress merges new intelligent technology with complex evolutionary behavior and makes us rethink intelligence in our digital age. The design concept is based on the unique nervous system of an octopus. The octopuses’ control center

City of Sound Bolero

City of Sound bolero The City of Sound bolero is a collective project with ElektroCouture in-house designer Sofie Di Bartolomeo. In this work she focuses on 3Dprinting on textiles and joined forces with DimensionAlley, Berlin’s first 3D printing shop. For the City of Sound bolero the designers recorded actual traffic noises and converted them into a three-dimensional pattern, which reminds of a big city skyline. The improvisational traffic map of Germany embraces the contours on the wearer’s back and arms and symbolically points towards how movement influences our daily lives. The jacket is made from soft faux-leather and suede with the

Kanika Goyal

Kanika Goyal Collection With its roots deep in quality craftsmanship and refined tailoring, Kanika Goyal's label embodies the concept of provocative minimalism. Fascinated by the principle of paradox, the designer consistently transforms her contrasting ideals into garments that narrate eclectic yet powerful stories. Inspired by youth, their behavioral patterns, subcultures, gadgets and slang, the collection transforms the idea of the digital epiphany into delicate details. The symbolic contrast between reality and virtuality is portrayed through the use of crystal and metal embellishment that decorates the coat. The brand’s signature asymmetry is combined with precise tailoring and innovative technology – LED lights

Bowties on Fire

Bowties on Fire Initially exclusively designed for the organizing team of Pioneersfestival 2014, ElektroCouture teamed up with Bowtieswala from Warsaw to give the traditional bowtie a fashionable technology touch. What started as a one-off project turned into a world’s first product: a handmade couture bow tie made with glass fiber optic material and a smart battery system. We used Glass Fibre Optic Material for it’s sattle yet very effective light effect – it sparkles like a midnight stargaze which makes the bowtie noticeable but not annoying or disturbing. The response at the release party was overwhelming. Men very much enjoyed is wearing it

The Journey of Light

The Journey of Light What happens when a white light passes through a prism? Each wavelength refracts at a different angle, and the prism disperses the light into its constituent colors. The Journey of light, based on the concept developed with illustrator and designer Dorota Orlof  captures this travel of light through an artistic approach. Portraying the play of light when it hits the prism, the squares in the design symbolise the prism and the lines symbolise light. The necklace has three variations — mirrored, white and black.
