Description:

A 10-day workshop under the direction of Francis Bitonti, where students will learn the tools and theory of computational design processes as they relate to Fashion design.  Courses will introduce students to the tools and software needed to design and fabricate complex geometry.  In addition to a schedule of courses, students will collaborate with Francis Bitonti Studio on the production of a 3D printed garment in the form of a working design studio environment.

Program History:

Francis Bitonti Studio’s New Skins Workshop Series, led by Francis Bitonti, launched Summer 2013 in Brooklyn, New York. Exploring new computational design methods and techniques, New Skins Workshop continuously focuses on immersing students with the tools and software needed to design and fabricate complex geometry in computational fashion design. With the intent to create new iconic forms and shapes, students work closely with Francis Bitonti Studio throughout the duration of the Workshops in the development and execution of 3d printed textiles. Francis Bitonti explains, “The workshop is about finding the new aesthetic formal language of this new manufacturing paradigm. It’s not just about replicating a form from the computer, though that is part of it—it’s about cultivating new material behaviors.”
