On September 9, Wichita State University Ulrich Museum of Art will host it’s Fall Exhibition Opening: Coded_Couture.
The event highlights the work of both artists and designers who have combined elements of coding and fashion to create Coded_Couture. The high-tech fashion showcase highlights stunning pieces that offer a look into the future.
The showcase features the work of 10 artist-designers from all over the world. In creating the featured pieces, the artists used the same kind of coding used in computer programming to create garments that are customizable to each consumer based on the personal information each one provides. This allows the artists to connect with the wearer, and highlights coding as the ultimate design tool for custom clothing.
The garments themselves are not the only part of the exhibition, however. Drawings, video projections, sketchbooks, and interactive opportunities will allow visitors to engage in the design process.
The event highlights the Coded_Couture showcase, food and music, and will run from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public to attend. The garments will be on view from Sept. 10 through Dec. 4.
