The Body Loom System offers an alternative model to the mantra of Fast Fashion and critically reflects upon the ever accelerating cycles of the fashion industry. The focus is on personalized woven frames that allow garments to be seamlessly woven into three-dimensional shapes. As the garment is fully manufactured in one stage, there is no need for cutting and sewing. The result is a 100% zero-waste product that fits the given body shape. Marina Wilhelmexplores with her concept the potential of digital process chains for tailor-made products and local production as well as the integration of end customers into the design process.
