Fashion Technicians highlights three industry-leading fashion designers, Iris Van Herpen, Hussein Chalayan and Ying Gao. They are celebrated for their abilities to push boundaries and create bold garments through the incorporation of technology and innovation. I want to translate the same originality and elegance to the design of this book.
The book is personally hand-bound using the hardcover binding technique. The covers are 3D printed to create a tactile experience similar to many of the wearable tech that these designers are known for, especially Iris Van Herpen’s 3D-printed details. The folios are all french folded, allowing me to add an accent color inside the folds. I chose a light glowing green to represent glow in the dark elements that Ying Gao uses in her collections.
