As part of the LA Design Festival Program, Gnomon invited Dutch Fashion Tech Designer, Anouk Wipprecht, and Quantum FX Lead Digital Artist, Ceres Regnum to the Stage to share insights into their fascinating worlds creating wearable designs for fashion, films, commercials, and more.
Anouk Wipprecht used machine learning and biomimicry coupled to sensors and animatronics giving her designs movement, and the ability to react to the world around them. In her visit to Gnomon, she discusses the possibilities of interactive fashion and how technology has never been so close to the skin, and shares new ways we can interface and build micro-controlled garments to provoke a generation.
“I wanted to make dresses that look like cars.” – Anouk Wipprecht

In the second part of the lecture, Ceres Regnum goes through the pipeline of making props and costumes for films and commercials, from concept to 3D printing. He discusses his approach to traditional sculpting, body-shopping, molding, casting, assembly, and painting, through to the final product. The lecture also gives insights into working with clients and production companies, and how to solve typical problems and difficulties on set.
Regnum explains in detail how rigorous each step of the process is and all considerations and precautions that need to be made before the costume is actually crafted.
