The studio has done away entirely with sketching. Pieces usually translate in full from an idea in Recht’s head to an initial drape of the half-scale mannequins. The pattern is then marked, copied to paper, scanned, and imported into Illustrator. Once the pattern has been vectorized, it’s exported to the laser cutter shown here, re-checked, and then doubled in size and cut again in fabric.
