Liu Lecture w/ Philip Delamore - THIS MONDAY!

Engineering Fashion: Killer Heels

Philip Delamore, Director of the Fashion Digital Studio at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London

Monday 16 April
6:00 PM
Packard Room 101

We just found out that Philip will be on campus next week and have partnered with the Stanford Center for Image Systems Engineering to set up a talk! Philip brings 20 years of experience in the fashion industry to his specialist field of research, which is in the convergence of fashion design and technology, regularly collaborating with international experts in the fields of human, material and computer sciences to develop new approaches to design thinking and practice. He has worked with 3D printing for a decade in the field of fashion and mass customization. He has recently exhibited work in Milan, London, Hong Kong and Stockholm and is a regular commentator and author, most recently published in “High Heels: Fashion, Femininity & Seduction” pub. Thames & Hudson, on the creative use of 3D Printing in fashion footwear.

This talk describes the uptake of 3D Rapid Prototyping technology into the fashion industries and presents case studies in fashion and sports footwear using components which have been laser sintered in Titanium and Polyamide. Increasing uptake of digital manufacturing into industry, combined with improved build speed, finish and size has allowed for greater flexibility in production of low volume, customized and bespoke products. The presentation also describes the innovation potential for these technologies to cross domains, and suggests that their creative exploration by designers may be the key to developing new market opportunities.
