Computational Fashion

“The future of the body will be very exciting because we have our garment as an interface. It’s a great opportunity to create new products that enable a new human experience” —Sabine Seymour, Chair, Computational Fashion

Computational Fashion is an Eyebeam initiative that brings together artists, fashion designers, scientists, and engineers to explore emerging ideas and develop work at the intersection of fashion and wearable technology. Launching in 2012 with support from the Rockefeller Foundation Cultural Innovation Fund, the program gives fashion designers and tech entrepreneurs access to emerging practices and trends through public programs and learning engagements.

Our 2015 exhibition drew record crowds. 

Programs range from intimate workshops for 15 people to panel discussions for 150, to our exhibitions for 300. Our presenters and collaborators have included leading design, science, and legal experts from Shapeways, Materialise, adidas, threeASFOUR, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New School, and NYU to highlight just a few of our participants.

Computational Fashion events include the annual, highly competitive Computational Fashion Master Class, a studio residency and R&D initiative between Eyebeam and Shapeways that creates advanced design processes for fashion houses.
