Intel x Parsons

A collaboration funded by Intel through Parsons School of Design bringing together engineers, industrial designers, data visualization specialists and creative technologists.

The project explores the relationship between fashion & technology as a means of improving user's relationships with their clothing through creating shape changing garments that reflect the multifaceted daily needs of their wearers. Through traditional couture smocking techniques, sewn with shape memory alloy wires and draping styles on the slit of a contemporary dress, our diverse team created two garments that can subtly and delicately change shape based on their wearer's daily calendar data.
