Be-Tween is an outfit made by Pauline van Dongen, in collaboration with researchers from the TU Eindhoven and SLEM. It follows Pauline’s field of expertise in generative design as its groundwork, to create a made-to-measure outfit that represents the fashion industry of the future.


    project details

    Be-Tween is an outfit designed for Jet Bussemaker, Dutch Minister of education, culture and science. For the occasion of ‘Prinsjesdag’, the day on which the Dutch government presents their agenda for the next year, the minister challenged fashion designer Pauline van Dongen and a team of engineers from the Technical University Eindhoven to create an innovative look.

    The outfit, existing out of a dress, shoes, hat and a bag, is a computational design; both patterns and fit have been created through algorithmic calculations, applied on a 3D body scan of the Minister. The design shows shows us how highly personalised the future of the fashion industry can become by use of new technologies.
