Abstract

This research uses case studies to describe and explore how the confluence of digital innovation and co-design is enabling new models for the clothing industry. It shows how interfaces for mass customization are being used to give consumers some participation in product development, however mass production methods still limit that. Nevertheless, digital innovation in production and social network used to support and inform amateur makers suggest ways that barriers might be overcome.
