Collina Stradal/KSENIASCHNAIDER

Collina Strada took a bold step during New York Fashion Week, unveiling its SS24 collection primarily designed by AI. The brand’s designers trained AI software Midjourney using their design archive dating back to 2008, refining the generated designs iteratively. The final AI designs were transformed into physical garments by the studio team. Similarly, the SS24 collection by KSENIASCHNAIDER delved into the juxtaposition of the past versus the present and traditional heritage versus modern technologies. Experimenting with AI, the brand created playful denim shapes inspired by Ukrainian traditional ensembles.

The legacy of Alan Turing’s “Turing Test” continues to inspire as HELIOT EMIL delved into the intersection of human and AI creativity. The HELIOT EMIL SS24 project and installation, inspired by Turing’s question, scrutinized AI’s capability to replicate human-like intelligence in fashion design. The project ventured to blur the boundaries between human and AI creativity, provoking contemplation on conventional notions of aesthetic complexity. As the fashion world explores the realm of AI-driven design, HELIOT EMIL’s endeavor exemplifies the ongoing fascination with Turing’s age-old query: Can machines truly mimic human ingenuity?
