Textile Technology at its Best:Clothing that is “Knit to Fit”

knit to fit bodyscanDo you all remember a few months back when I wrote about the Stoll Fashion & Technology Knitting Center in the heart of the Garment District?  What am I saying? Of course you remember, you all are such loyal readers.  Anyway, while fiddling around on YouTube, I found this great video featuring Sandy Black, a professional of fashion and textile design at the London College of Fashion.  Can you guess what she’s doing in this video?  She’s working on a knitwear project that utilizes the Stoll machinery.  Using a 3D body scan, garments are “Knit to Fit”.

    I can’t see this ever being a possibility in majority of the stores that exist today. It would have to be a designer store or a store that’s not busy at all. If this was to exist in the near future, everyone should look their best in everything they wear.

    Would the price of the finish product be the same as if it was made for numerous body types or cost way more?? I think way more.
