CODED_COUTURE Exhibition, Programming Combine Emerging Tech With Pioneering Design

July 13, 2017

Customization has always been at the heart of couture, but what happens when a designer integrates the digital age into fashion design? Rooted in technology and code, Oklahoma Contemporary’s current exhibition examines the intersection of traditional fashion design and tomorrow’s tech.

Visitors to CODED_COUTURE, an exhibition that imagines a future of fashion design with emerging technology at its core, can interact with its garments in a variety of ways — from tweeting to a skirt and listening to a trench coat to creating a could-be-3-D-printed dress or building an outfit using their own social media. The exhibition, powered by Google, will run until Aug. 14.

A media kit, including this press release and high-resolution images of CODED_COUTURE works, is at http://bit.ly/CodedCouturekit. Interviews with and exhibitions staff can be organized through Director of Communications Lori Brooks (lbrooks@okcontemp.org). (July 13, 2017)
