Design Indaba • Speaker
I was invited to speak on my view of future fashion at the Design Indaba conference in Capetown (2016).
“She believes that one day fashion could be downloadable and open source, and where designers become facilitators that guide the customer instead of being in control of the whole process and has created a manifesto that outlines how she thinks the fashion industry could change.
De Pont had noticed that for a single t-shirt there were at least seven steps in the process that involved the material moving in between countries and factories. In her pieces she aims to eliminate some of those steps and bring the production into a much more local sphere.”
