A fashion designer joined Samsung and created the first "couture" collection of haute couture ever designed and produced through a smartphone. The final result will be presented in Paris.
Award-winning stylist Aurélie Fontan enlisted the help of the new Galaxy Note 9 in the seven major stages of creation and production of the first Mobile Couture collection in the world, allowing the collection to be created in eight days instead of the usual ones 14 days.
To design the capsule collection (mini collection outside the main collection of the station), the Frenchwoman had several tools of the new mobile phone, namely 3D printing and the control of prototypes of sketches through the Galaxy Note 9.
The Samsung flagship also allowed Aurélie Fontan to remotely paint the fabric patterns and send it wirelessly to a Joto X, a highly advanced digital design robotic device that transferred the patterns to the skin of the pieces.
The final pieces were made with a combination of recycled skins and biodegradable 3D plastic fastening accessories, with the entire breeding process lasting six weeks.
For the creative it was interesting to discover "that there was a smartphone that had the capabilities to control the whole process of producing a collection", considering "liberating" to see their ideas come to life "with a device that" was always in my hand. "
The "Mobile Couture" collection will be presented on October 18 in Paris.
