Coded Couture at Pratt Manhattan Gallery

Coded Couture is an exhibition that proposes a new interpretation of couture where coding is the ultimate design tool for creating customized garments and accessories. It showcases a range of futuristic fashion concepts, including a shrug that reveals when the wearer is distressed and a dress with integrated lie detectors.

As technology advances and increasingly ingratiates itself into various design fields, fashion designers continue to explore new directions with materials and fabrication. The works displayed range from forward-looking garments and accessories to video projections, objects, drawings, photographs, and interactive applications that provide the public with greater insights into what the future of fashion may hold.

The show aims to explore how boundaries in dressmaking are being increasingly pushed in ways that are highly conceptual or previously unimaginable. Besides, during the exhibition, visitors will be encouraged to interact with some dresses using a specially-created hashtag.

All the works in Coded Couture are categorized according to four basic coding themes – biological, cultural, psychological, and synergistic – exploring topics of identity, representation, and personalization. Coded Couture has debuted at Pratt Manhattan Gallery and will travel nationally to many other galleries.
