Created with Sarah Mosbeh, 2021.

“At the time, I was seeking oblivion, and I sought in those blank, anonymous faces, even the most painfully familiar, a kind of benign escape. A death that would not mean being dead.” Annihilation

In an apocalyptic context, Rebirth happens. How plants behave within that context was our inspiration, nature takes over and constantly transforms. So will the way clothing is produced in terms of materials as well as functionality and form.

The visuals for the textile design were generated by machine learning, training a munit model on google colab to output the textile. The model works by cross referencing archival images of Alexander McQueens runway shows along with the complete works of Alphonse Mucha.


To achieve the final results the below, munit model was left to train over the span of 4 days. Inputting any image and outputting the style transfer.
