Vera de Pont
Based in Utrecht, The Netherlands
Studio Vera de Pont is a one man company researching on-demand fashion items, based on her vision to eliminate waste materials immediately at the start of the production line.
Projects include zero waste garment patterns and researching innovative fashion production techniques (mostly technology from other disciplines) that incorporates the consumer as a maker or co-creator. These projects also investigate the role of technology within local fashion production and co-creation in order to analyse the benefits this may offer to create a more collaborative and environmentally, socially and economically sustainable fashion system.
Her machines and conceptual apparatus either produce fully finished garments or parts that can be assembled, opening the door for customised manufacturing of wearables and reducing the logistics costs.
