AUROBOROS, YOAV HADARI and LEO CARLTON: Virtually Fashion at Sarabande Foundation
Time & Location
About the Event
Digital fashion is here to stay, and three Sarabande Foundation artists are pioneering the movement. With their practice bleeding between the physical and digital realms, Auroboros, Yoav Hadari and Leo Carlton each bring something different to this emerging platform.
What if the future of fashion is in a different dimension? Instead of dressing ourselves, the buzz will be from digitally generated couture, or expressing our identities through avatars. Join these Sarabande Foundation artists as they present their brave new worlds in this mini webinar via Zoom, with the opportunity to ask questions at the end.
About the Artists:
Auroboros - an avant-garde duo focused on the integration and merging of science and technology in haute couture. Creating the near-future for both wearable and virtual body, our work stands for innovation, sustainability and immersive design. Coming from international backgrounds as well as earning qualifications from Goldsmiths and Central Saint Martins. We use design as a way to create a discussion surrounding the idea of a utopian future and its relationship to the human body.
Yoav Hadari draws from his personal history as a teenage gamer and his experience as a fashion designer to envision a future for fashion that involves recycling and VR fantasy experiences. Used as a tool for presenting fashion in a socially distant world, the VR experience is matched by evolved textiles crafted from recycled materials. A Thom Browne NY alum, Hadari draws from his industry experience to find sustainable solutions to manufacturing and developing fashion.
Leo Carlton is a London-based headwear and fashion artefact designer who makes headpieces using a 3D printed PLA (polyactic acid) filament, made from biodegradable fermented plant starches. Each headpiece was developed in virtual reality using Oculus Rift, allowing Leo to purge ideas and test forms, stability and bespoke sizing, before even touching the raw material. Graduating from Cordwainers, London College of Fashion in 2014, Leo has since collaborated with many other creatives, including Charles Jeffrey and Tim Walker - and has been featured in Another Man magazine, British Vogue, Vogue Italia. He continues to work as millinery assistant at Stephen Jones. Leo was in-residence at Sarabande Foundation for 2 years from 2015 – 2017.
