3D Punk Defined by Carrie Munden
Fashion site SHOWstudio asked a number of creatives to express their vision of Punk by creating a fashion video and garment. This is fashion designer and stylist Carri Mundens contribution, using 3D mapping and modelling techniques.
English Carri Munden is the designer behind fashion brand CassettePlaya, well-known to a fashion audience for earlier collaborations with M.I.A and Rhianna . She claims her striking graphic style to be inspired by among other things video games and pixelation. In fact Mundane has earlier been commissioned by Nintendo DS to provide vinyl and foil artwork for the console’s MySims world game. She says of those she works with, “We have the same references… I translate their sound into clothes.”
SHOWstudio has since early millenium continued to deliver groundbreaking fashion projects, making online fashion a platform for innovation while delivering fashion film out of the ordinary.
To SHOWstudio’s lead, Nick Knight 3D tech hardly comes off as something new having experimented with it for fifteen years. Nick has worked closely with stars like Lady Gaga and Björk, and is to be considered a fashion veteran with unconventional methods. Earlier this year he presented a campaign for fashion retail giant Lane Crawford where he both used 3d scanning and motion capture, as always with a personal twist. Watch the result.
