Elizabeth Bigger is best known for the way she seamlessly integrates computational elements into garment design and construction. After spending 15 years in tailoring and costume design for opera and theatre, she began experimenting with computational tools. In 2010, she founded her studio in an effort to utilize these computational resources to upgrade the process of garment design, creation and production. Her studio has been honored with Jury Prizes from the International Symposium of Wearable Computers in 2012 for ‘Lume’ and in 2016 for ‘Programmable Plaid.’ Elizabeth combines historically relevant garment construction and patterning techniques with modern day CAD, CAE, electronics and digital fabrication.
