Giorgia Lupi & Other Stories: A data-driven fashion collection inspired by three trailblazing women in science

What does "humanized data" look like? It turns out, it can look like a sweater, blouse, or bag. Information designer Giorgia Lupi wanted to create a project that combined data and storytelling to uplift the accomplishments of women in STEM. Through a collaboration with the apparel designers at & Other Stories, Lupi incorporated data patterns into garment designs, creating beautiful pieces with both embroidered patterns and custom-printed textiles. The designs were primarily inspired by three women in STEM: computer programmer Ada Lovelace, environmentalist Rachel Carson, and astronaut and physicist Mae Jemison. At the link above, readers will find a project summary, beginning with a brief video where Lupi introduces the idea and then offers brief biographies of each muse (Lovelace, Carson, and Jemison). Additionally, readers can explore the garments themselves (click the "portfolio view" link to enlarge the images). The collection is available on the website for Pentagram, "a multi-disciplinary, independently-owned design studio."
