The Austrian designer Julia Koerner, who is based between Los Angeles, USA, and Salzburg in her home country, uses generative design tools and 3D-printing technology to work across a field of disciplines including architecture, fashion, and product design.
She is the founder of her own practice, JK Design, and holds a teaching role at UCLA's Architecture and Urban Design department.
Koerner combined cutting-edge technology and traditional influences when collaborating with Hollywood costume designer Ruth E Carter to create Queen Ramonda's costumes in the 2018 film Black Panther, which won the 2019 Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
Elsewhere, Koerner has applied 3D-printing and parametric design techniques to create haute couture pieces that draw inspiration from the natural world.
Koerner's Arid collection, unveiled earlier this year, is a set of 38 3D-printed parts that can be combined to form a full-dress. The parts can also be reconfigured in numerous ways to form other kinds of garments.
