Artist's Statement
Lilach Porges is an Israeli fashion designer with an academic background in architecture. She uses parametric design methods to create textiles and garments. Lilach wishes to combine fashion with technology and to research more sustainable production methods to create the fashion of the future. Her work centers around developing innovative methods for 3D-printed garments with robotic arms, exploring architectonic shapes with the ambition to bring the worlds of science, engineering, and fashion together to empower women.
About this Collection:
“DRESS_CODE” focuses on the merger between technology and fashion. It combines looks that were 3D printed by a robotic arm with sustainable materials through three methods: random, accurate, and large-scale. Inspired by software engineering, the collection explores the aesthetics of the abilities and limitations of this technology. The thesis research and collection compare traditional methods, such as patternmaking and fabric sewing to 3D printing by hand and by a robot, where software becomes art and is translated into wearable objects.
