Launched in 2002, SHOWstudio's Design Download initiative has a simple and direct aim: to help demystify the fashion process by offering prestigious designer garment patterns for download via the Internet. Past contributors to the series include John Galliano, Junya Watanabe, J.W. Anderson, Yohji Yamamoto and Alexander McQueen.
For 2019, the inimitable Iris van Herpen has donated the pattern for a black sheath dress from her A/W 15/16 Hacking Infinity collection. Exploring the process of terraforming - the atmospheric modification of other planets to suit earth-dwelling creatures - Van Herpen presents a garment that is at once experimental and elegant.
Simply submit images of your creation to SHOWstudio via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the chance to see your work displayed online in our submissions gallery. All submissions will be judged and a winner will be selected by SHOWstudio. The prize is to be announced soon...
