With the research “High Fashion in Equations”, a group of researchers at MIRALab, University of Geneva, virtually brought to life18 haute couture garments out of original ancient fashion drawings from designers such as Marc Bohan, Serge Guérin and Hubert de Givenchy, former assistants of the famous couturier Robert Piguet.

Shown only in two dimensions, a sketch leaves a lot of space for individual interpretation of the garment in three dimensions. 3D Computer Graphics tools give the user the freedom to visualize the real world virtually in a realistic or a completely abstract way.
