Otto von Busch, Fashion Fianchettos, 2009

Swedish fashion theorist, artist, designer and self-proclaimed “Fashion Hacktivist,” Otto von Busch regularly holds workshops and gives lectures centered on the many possibilities of DIY creation. Fashion Fianchettos takes its name from a tactical move in chess. Busch aims to reprogram clothes by utilizing an oversized t-shirt with a grid (hardware) and creating draping codes (software) that can be easily reproduced through a simple set of instructions. The basic commands used in Fianchetto programming are: garment(type), grid(size), wear(normal, upsidedown) and connect(coordinates).
