Coded Couture

CuteCircuit: Launched by Francesca Rosella & Ryan Genz, 2004

Customization has always been at the heart of couture: the hand-beaded, hand-stitched, one-of-a-kind gown as a piece of art with a specific connection to its wearer. Judith Hoos

Boston Design Week

Fox co-curated Coded_Couture, an exhibition that rocked New York Fashion Week last year, on view at Tufts University Art Gallery January 24–May 21, 2017. In it, designers in the digital age introduce fascinating and sometimes alarming approaches to communicate and connect the wearer and the world.

Hear Judith Hoos Fox talk about her explorations of new couture rooted in coding: garments and accessories that detect lies, decode speech, monitor emotions and send tweets.
