Science Inspired Design

Science Inspired Designs by Eleanor – five in the Collection were previewed at FASHFEST. All designs are extracted from her research interests in science art (CSIRO + ANU), deconstructing the complex 3D images and reusing in beautiful repeat pattern. Artworks are available direct from Studio  E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T  Australia – likewise for other design projects and commisssions.

Insects walk the Catwalk: FASHFEST

Amazing ‘insects’ hit the catwalk in FASHFEST, as the science inspired insect prints were proudly showcased in the Scientist fashion theme. Almost ironic as the designs are 3D insect body maps … rewrapped as swimwear and stunning in their appearance. Five designs were selected from Eleanor’s collection, images that form part of her research at CSIRO (Computational Informatics Division) and the ANU (CPAS) reflecting her focus in science+art+technology.

Using Eleanor’s fabric designs, the swimsuits are then designed by British fashion Designer, Shelley Campton and printed in collaboration with JETS Digital.
