)-- Pioneering former architect-turned-fashion designer, Francis Bitonti (http://www.francisbitonti.com/), has recently announced that he will be holding a detailed workshop, New Skins San Francisco 2014: Bestial Bodies, on creating high fashion designs and turning them into live works of art through the use of 3D printing technology with Autodesk, Inc. The presentation will be held from Monday through Friday from 1:00pm to 5:00pm starting August 4th, 2014 through August 15th,2014 at the Autodesk, Inc. offices in Pier 9, 594 The Embarcader, San Francisco, CA. Bitonti has teamed up with the 3D design, engineering and entertainment software company to showcase his first-of-its-kind talent of crafting singular dimensional ideas and turning them into 3D fashion items. This workshop will continue to focus on the investigative use of computation to create new morphologies, including research of both organic and synthetic morphologies to create new skins. With a flawless combination of high fashion and high tech, Bitonti is not only taking fashion to a place it’s never gone before, but has managed to manipulate the futuristic effects of 3D printing into works of wearable art.

To observe the full experience of Francis Bitonti’s process please RSVP by August 1, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP'd media can witness a special presentation on August 14, 2014.
“My design process is a collaboration with artificial intelligence,” begins fashion designer Francis Bitonti. “Thinking of an innovative design is one thing--anyone can do that. I enjoy the process of bringing art to life. Art is not flat, nor is fashion; they tend to go hand and hand, and I truly enjoy the idea of making the impossible possible. Technology is advancing, and it is only natural that our aesthetics follow. I’d love to show everyone just what 3D printing and advancing technology is capable of and how it is possible to use it to our advantage.”
Francis Bitonti is a leading New York fashion designer who easily stands out all on his own thanks to his disruptive approach on luxury wear. He is currently working on finishing his first workshop, New Skins London 2014: Deus Ex Machina, which spanned from July 7th, 2014 through July 18th, 2014 in Ravensbourne, London. Here Bitonti showcased not only how to create articulated 3D printed flexible fabrics, but how to create textures that transform with movement and animate themselves across the body as well. While most designers create garments, Bitonti creates art and reworks it into wearable, customized pieces. He is the creative genius behind the first fully articulated 3D print gown famously worn by fashion darling Dita Von Teese. Bitonti prefers to look to the future of fashion design and mass customization while working with the advanced technologies of now. Francis Bitonti’s work has been published internationally in many prestigious institutions including the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and most recently has garnered media coverage for the 3D printed gown created for fashion icon Dita von Teese, which received numerous accolades and a great deal of public attention when it was debuted at Ace Hotel in New York City in 2013.
