MAKE DIY COUTURE
Haute couture may be the greatest fashion indulgence of all, but what if you could become your own couturière? Dutch designer Martijn van Strien’s The Post-Couture Collective wants to hand you (yes, you!) the tools to piece together your clothes. Van Strien developed downloadable clothing patterns that can be cut and assembled by anyone—no sewing experience required (although a laser cutter helps). All you have to do to make the minimal coats, dresses and tops is weave the pieces together through notches and slits—think of it as a wearable jigsaw puzzle. The clothes are as slick and futuristic as the concept itself.
