Is a project which combines sustainable nano fabric, amazing pattern and fashion forms we designed enriched by the virtual content which is revealed through the smart phone pointed at the piece of the clothing. You see the pattern elements to come alive! You witness art and fashion, real and unreal. The idea of this project is to point at the hidden qualities of the material, the nano fabric which are not obvious on the first glance! This is a playful experiment showing the potential of the elevation of the pattern and fashion design to an unexpected realm. Fashion design is an art to present the human body in new forms of self-expression through art, be it physical or virtual. In our case it is both.
