Spotted: Research collective Synflux has come up with a way to reduce fabric waste by creating clothes that fit a person’s body perfectly. The Algorithimic Couture project uses 3D-scanning to determine the measurements and then runs machine-learning algorithms to find the optimum design pattern, bringing fabric waste to zero. Synflux is a collaboration between fashion designer Kazuya Kawasaki, design engineer Kye Shimizu, designer Kotaro Sano and machine learning engineer Yusuke Fujihira. The team claims that current fashion design practices waste 15 percent of the fabric used while providing customers with poorly-fitting clothing. “I have used code to eliminate waste and make fashion sustainable,” Shimizu told Twyg. The project…
