These textiles were designed for Katie Gallagher's Autumn/winter 2013 Collection. Francis Bitonti Studio collaborated with Katie Gallagher to realize these laser wool textiles. The ambition for the project was to create an atmosphere around the body wherein the body’s silhouette would be dissolved into its surroundings. 

Each textile was specifically generated for the garment. Francis Bitonti Studio digitized each of the patterns and developed computer algorithms that would generate the tool paths for laser cutting. We used the dress patterns as an input that informs the propagation of the branching pattern. The result was a dynamic responsive pattern that responds to the shape and curvature of the garment where no two parts are ever exactly alike.
