Design Notes: Virtual Couture

Kerry Murphy of The Fabricant explains why digital fashion is the future

Design Notes is a show about creative work and what it teaches us. In this episode, Liam speaks with Kerry Murphy, co-founder of digital fashion house The Fabricant, to learn how ones and zeros are spun, woven, and stitched into virtual couture.

In designing couture that doesn’t—or can’t—exist in physical space, The Fabricant also explores ideas of embodiment and self-actualization. Murphy pushes these concepts even further, by interacting with his own “virtual twin,” composed from 3D-scans of his body.

“I was able to start breaking the barriers that I had set, just by observing myself from a third-person perspective.”
