Procode_Dress aims to revolutionise the fashion industry by automating the production of wearable collections through robot-printed garments. By partnering with sponsors such as ABB and New Bedford for Research and Robotics for Robotics and Xtellar for sustainable 3D printing materials, the brand hopes to bring the worlds of “science, engineering and fashion together” for a more sustainable future.

Porges explained: “3D printing will open doors to a new world of sustainable materials that we may not have considered before. I have a background in architecture and engineering and have always enjoyed coding, programming, and science.

“My goal is to merge technology and fashion using unconventional materials and software to create fashion for the future that empowers women.”

Porges is said to centre her brand around developing innovative methods for 3D-printing garments with robotic arms and exploring architectonic shapes.

The brand used the robotic arm 3D printing technology to design its inaugural collection, called “The Roller Coaster”.

It was inspired by the shapes and colours of a roller coaster and this was used to code the robot’s movement and determine the drapery of the material around the human body.

In November, Spanish fashion retailer Mango invested in Ziknes, a start-up that develops software and robotic 3D printing systems to enable it to go from design to print with recycled materials, in a matter of minutes.

The fashion retailer said at the time it hoped the entrepreneurs would learn first-hand how Mango operates and be able to scale up their business model.
