Architectural T-shirts









This is not new (I think it hit the blog world last year), but it's new to me and I am swooning :) I'm loving the architectural constructions in these t-shirts. The T-shirt Issue was the brainchild of Mashallah Design and Linda Kostowski, who digitally scanned three people and combined this data with a digital twin of the body that reflected a particular thought or memory. (Sounds quite incredible - don't ask me about the validity of this technology!)


Anyway... apparently the 3D data from the scans was translated into a 2D sewing pattern and pieced together using sweatshirt jersey to form the embodiment of these memories into a garment especially for them... wanting to be raised by wolves... the air in one's bathers... and memories of a special encounter.


You can find out more by visiting Mashallah Design or The T-Shirt Issue websites.
