Luciano Benetton Receives Doctor of Fine Arts From FIT

Luciano Benetton and designer, engineer and inventor Chuck Hoberman were awarded honorary degrees of Doctor of Fine Arts Thursday at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s commencement exercises at Radio City Music Hall. In addition, artist Harry Bertschmann received the President’s Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Lilliana Vazquez, celebrity stylist and TV personality, spoke at the morning ceremony for students graduating from FIT’s School of Art and Design and School of Liberal Arts, while Hoberman, who invented the Hoberman Sphere, and has over 20 patents for his transformable inventions, addressed graduates of FIT’s Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology in the afternoon.
Hoberman offered some words of advice to the graduates. First, you need a lot of ideas to get to the good ones, don’t be afraid to have a vision, don’t stress waiting for one big light bulb moment, write your ideas down, sketch, you need to be experts in something specific, and when you hit a wall, invent your way out of it.
As reported, Benetton, who just turned 83, has been back in the news because in January he resumed having the reins of the family-owned company as executive president, with the goal to turn around the fashion group

Q&A: Royal College of Art’s Zowie Broach

Zowie Broach, cofounder of the fashion-meets-art label Boudicca and a longtime educator, is the new head of fashion at London’s Royal College of Art, which offers a two-year MA program. Alumni include Zandra Rhodes, Ossie Clark, Christopher Bailey and Erdem Moralioglu. We caught up with Broach just before her first student fashion show this week at the college in Kensington.

What are you aiming to instill in the students?
I want them to be independent thinkers, to be present to their time, and that means philosophy, science, technology, material — and history. It’s also about understanding great cut and drape — and what is excellence. I think the smartest people in fashion, Miuccia Prada or Rei Kawakubo, are deeply connected to the present intellectual thinking. And I think they would expect the same of the people they employ.
How are you preparing the students for the brutal world of fashion?
They’re sharp to the business of life, sharp to understanding what they know — and what they don’t. They also know the current business model is taking a while to shift: I had a student who said: ‘I can work for Ralph Lauren

This ‘4D-Printed’ Dress Just Became Part Of The Museum Of Modern Art’s Collection

The Kinematics dress, created by generative design studio Nervous System, is, in all cliches, not your average piece of fabric. For starters, the Museum of Modern Art recently acquired the fashionable objet d’art, along with the app that goes with it, adding it to the institute’s growing collection of contemporary design products. Secondly, the dress is made from four dimensional printing technologies, meaning it’s a 3D-printed object meant to “change shape or automatically reassemble” according to its environment.

Nervous System (est. 2007), Jessica Rosenkrantz (American, born 1983), Jesse Louis-Rosenberg (American, born 1986). Kinematics Dress. 2013. Laser-sintered nylon. Image courtesy of Steve Marsel. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Committee on Architecture and Design Funds.

“We refer to Kinematics as a 4D printing system because it generates compressed objects that unfold into their intended shape after printing,” creative director Jessica Rosenkrantz told Dezeen. “The garments that we’ve designed can only expand to their full size after being removed from the printer and they do so automatically, no assembly is required.”

skirt

The dress is composed of thousands of interlocking pieces (2,279 unique triangular panels interconnected by 3,316 hinges, to be exact), taking the shape of a single folded nylon garment. The dress is entirely customizable, and is able to conform and move according to a body’s flexibility. “This textile is not uniform,” Nervous System explains, “it varies in rigidity, drape, flex, porosity and pattern through space.”

The coordinating app allows anyone to design a Kinematics work, printed by Shapeways, “from an uploaded 3D body scan, selecting the size and shape of the modules and ‘painting’ them onto the dress or skirt in real-time,” C-Net writes. Not only are the resulting garments verifiable works of art, they are part of a movement that seemingly democratizes the way we produce boundary-pushing fashion.

dress back

The Kinematics dress will go on view at MoMA as part of the upcoming “This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good,” debuting on February 14, 2015. The title of the show takes its name from British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee — you know, the inventor of the World Wide Web — who tweeted the message as part of the Olympic opening ceremonies in London in 2012. While Berners-Lee’s quote emphasizes the possibilities of information sharing across the internet, “This Is for Everyone” questions the sentiment through a series of design products that challenge the universality of that potential.

“We sometimes forget that new technologies are not inherently democratic,” MoMA wrote in a press release for the exhibition. “Is design in the digital age — so often simply assumed to be for the greater good — truly for everyone?”

You can see a preview of the other pieces on view in the exhibition below.
