Project DNA, the three-dimensional accessories collection from London-based designer, Catherine Wales, will take part in the Design Museum’s new exhibition, The Future is Here.

The exhibition takes place from the 24th of July through to the 29th of October and will look at new methods of manufacturing and how they are revolutionising the role of the consumer, exploring the emerging technologies that will become tomorrow’s growth sectors.

Catherine says, “Advances in technology have allowed me to utilise my expertise as a pattern cutter to approach current complications surrounding garment sizing and manufacturing restrictions. 3D technology can sustainably solve sizing issues and cut down on wastage while better supporting consumer demand.”

At the helm of the world’s third industrial revolution, Catherine’s debut offering cross-pollinates high fashion, technology and science to re-evaluate conventional methods of garment construction and push the boundaries of digital fabrication within the luxury market.

Catherine has been working in luxury and fashion for over 15 years and prior to turning her sights to the digital world, Catherine trained and worked with some of the most prestigious fashion labels in the world, cutting designs for Jasper Conran, Jean Charles de Castelbajac, Oswald Boateng, Emanuel Ungaro, and Saint Laurent where she worked with the renowned Hedi Slimane and former design assistant, Simon Spurr.

Inspired by identity and the visual structure of human chromosomes, Project DNA is created almost entirely with individual and interchangeable ball and socket components that allow it to be built in a number of directions. Produced using white nylon with a 3D printer, the collection pieces on show will encompass a scaffolded corset and a blossoming feathered shoulder piece.

Catherine’s futuristic collection is completely unique and can be used both editorially to stimulate conceptual thinking and scientifically to develop the capabilities of luxury fashion prototyping within the 3D space.
