Julia Daviy - Art Bags, Carbon-Neutral Bag Collection, Part 1, Ready-to-Wear Show - Digital Fabrication, Additive Manufacturing.
New York Fashion Week 2020 Flying Solo Ones to Watch Show - February 8, 2020.
At this year’s New York Fashion Week, Julia Daviy premiered a collection of art handbags whose design is inspired by Alan Turing’s groundbreaking work on morphogenesis. The Morphogenesis collection which includes nine digital designer bags and produced in a variety of materials is a result of Julia Daviy's research on the intersection of fashion, technology and environmental science.
The Morphogenesis bags are created as a result of synthesizing digital fabrication and additive manufacturing technologies, which empowers the creation of a physical bag from a digital one in a variety of sizes.
Aesthetically, the collection imbues motifs of lines to manifest complex structures created from simplest geometrical shapes—representing an inherent connection between us as humans and all species of the earth, the organic with non-organic, visible with invisible, known and unknown.
For this collection Julia Daviy used multiple technology approach to achieve best results. Among the others additive manufacturing methods, she uses MJF, SLA and SLS.
The most significant impact is radically decreased amount of waste, pollution and water usage - by 98% and more compared to the traditional leather bags and significantly reduced carbon footprint - by 92% and more comparing to the traditional leather bags.
