The Data Dress

Hackathon / Participant 

At a hackathon that happened to overlap London Fashion Week, our team decided to create a dress from the pictures that were being uploaded to instagram and flickr tagged with the #lfw hashtag, with the view to completing the dress and taking it to Somerset House for a photo shoot and (the venue for LFW) to show it off before the event finished.

The dress was eventually exhibited at the Whitechapel Gallery. Photo credit: Paul Clarke
