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

IED Barcelona has been consolidating its position as a driving force behind innovation and social well-being through design education. "A collective dream" is a faithful reflection of this spirit.
“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home".
How do we construct and explain stories? How do we use technology to improve new realities and formats? How do physical space and the virtual environment coexist? What aspects define good design in virtual worlds?
IED students will explore alongside members of ONCE possible responses to the difficulties faced by this community with relation to everyday objects.
An interactive installation to create our own virtual identity and an immersive journey through a 3D “wonderland” are the proposals that IED Barcelona and IED Milan presented at the SónarCCCB 2021, driven by Sónar.
A project focused on the current needs of cities and their citizens, the integration of technology and respect for the environment.
Virtual innovation is gaining increasing importance, and for creatives, it is a great tool to transform and improve society.
IED Barcelona organised the round table "What's the next point?" in a bid to imagine what future design scenarios will be like from the perspective of training, taking the city of Barcelona as a case study.
On the occasion of this celebration, “A collective dream” will be showcased; a display through the history of the school by way of outstanding projects carried out by its students.
