Like many other industries, fashion is experiencing rapid and profound transformations brought about by technological advances. The digital impact puts into question the traditional limits of the fashion world, while, at the same time, proposing a profound reflection around aligning values such as creativity and sustainability with the use of new technologies.
One of the key areas in this paradigm shift is parametric design, with practical applications in a multitude of disciplines, and which is gradually emerging in the world of fashion. This advanced digital design technique uses algorithms to create unique pieces, streamline processes and reduce costs. Although it is still in the experimentation phase, there are already many voices talking about its future trajectory in the industry.
What impact will this discipline have on fashion on the streets? How can we balance the use of specialised software with preserving the richness of traditional crafts? How will it relate to values such as sustainability and inclusiveness? Will parametric design change production and sales processes?
On 2 December, at 6.30 pm, Marina Castán, Coordinator of the Master in Fashion Technology and Wearables , will be in conversation with Ane Castro and Núria Costa, Co-Founders of Zer Era , addressing these and other issues in the IED Barcelona Master Talk 21/22, which will be broadcast via the school’s YouTube channel.
Date: 2 December 2021
Time: 6.30 pm
