Vogue’s DIY Section

 

Reading the June Issue of Vogue I was so excited to see several features on”customising fashion”.
This issue features a guide by fashion designer Ederm showing “how to” customise a jacket. The step by step guide is  beautifully illustrated with photographs which breaks down the method and process. 
I think a high fashion magazine like Vogue adopting DIY methods reflects the rise in Make Do and Mend movements. Sewing machine and haberdashery sales are on the increase and people are seeking out innovative ways to engage in fashion.
In this current economic climate and with a growing concern around environmental issue’s we are asked to question our consumption. People are beginning to be a little more creative with their money, effort and time. I find the concept of collective creativity really inspiring. 
I have attached some photos from Vogue and I cant wait to see if their are any new articles in the new issue!

Computational Design




Nervous System have created a custom design tool to allow users to create bespoke products. Consumers can opt to buy ready designed jewellery or create their own. Each item is laser cut or produced through rapid prototyping methods by which all unique pieces can be manufactured at the same cost as cookie cutter ones. Therefore everything is affordable and ethically made.

They have also released their source code under the creative commons license to encourage others to adopt a similar approach. This interactive approach allows unique products to be created and as there is no definitive, final product, many designs can be created to allow for mass customisation.
