Physical crafts are the technologies of the pre-digital age while digital tools are becoming the crafts of the future. The project Augmented Weaving was initiated in 2021 by Anita Michaluszko and Flavia Bon to explore novel ways of working around the technique of jacquard weaving and digital forms of craft. Their research focuses on the creative exploration of physical, digital, and virtual tools in fabric and textile shape creation. Envisioning a future where the digital realm is a boundless playground while the creation of physical objects becomes rare and the ultimate luxury.

“What if we could express ourselves without wasting any physical material?” This was the question Suza asked herself. With a background in tailoring, she began to question the fashion industry’s practices. The concept of 3D fashion resonated with her as a means to create a more sustainable future. Being one of the pioneers in this field, her career took a significant turn. Suza started as a junior fashion designer at The Fabricant and eventually grew into the role of Creative Lead. This year, she embarked on her own journey as an independent digital fashion artist, establishing her own brand. Her work serves as a reflection of her life, characterized by a unique style that combines vintage and archetypal elements through a futuristic lens.
The Fabricant is the digital fashion house leading the fashion industry towards a future of digital-only clothing, which operates at the intersection of fashion, gaming and blockchain. It creates its own digital-only couture collections and collaborates with brands to bring them into the 3D space. To date it has worked with Under Armour, Off-White, Vogue Singapore, Puma, Napapijri, Peak Performance and Adidas, amongst others, to demonstrate the vast creative possibilities within the digital fashion environment.
