3 students from fashion and 3 students from the technical university researched the possibilities and limitations of different structures, materials and combinations of them. The ‘memory-muscle-wire’ was explored and found suitable for our purposes - since we are able to control the size and movement of a fabric, by the resistance of these wires. Since the wires are also thin, it gives the possibility to reshape it by hand and apply it into a garment. In contrast of the light, growing fabric; there is investigated how we can create a organic, protective shell which supports the human body.
