My collection was manufactured with the possibilities of future production in mind - How can we make the production process less wasteful? Can we assemble clothes without human intervention? Can we make clothes that last longer? Therefore, the collection's production follows two key concepts -
Additive manufacturing - The least wasteful manufacturing method as it makes use of all material available. For this purpose, all the garments were designed as 1-2 pattern pieces, allowing to theoretically print the entire garment in a single go. Lacking the technology currently, the patterns were printed as a whole using contrado.com services, but were transfered to Rhino and were prepared to be printed using additive manufacturing.
Seamless assembly - Modern sewing machines require human intervention. Therefore, I envisioned a process where garments are assembled using machines instead. In this process, the garments are bonded together instead of sewn together, using a Sonobond machine. This method serves as a prototype for future possibilities of assembling garments.
After the data analysis process and the creation of the report, Manus generates sartorial recommendations in line with the customer’s lifestyle and aesthetic preferences that vary from the garment’s department (activewear, ready-to-wear, eveningwear, etc.) to fabric choices.
