Koerner’s presentation focuses on recent innovations in 3D printing, which have revolutionized the cross-disciplinary design work of architects and fashion designers. Such novel collaborations within the fashion industry are disrupting traditional craftsmanship and empowering innovation by utilizing emergent technologies. These new methods re-form fashion production and potentially reduce shipping, carbon footprint and textile waste, and open opportunities for implementing sustainable processes in production, alongside innovative new aesthetics.


Koerner is an award-winning Austrian designer, founder of JK Design GmbH and faculty member at UCLA AUD. Her recent collaborations include 3D-printed haute couture and the Academy Award-winning costumes for the film Black Panther. For more information, visit www.juliakoerner.com
