Linz Art University’s new Fashion & Technology program invites festival-goers to take a virtual journey that opens up unexpected dimensions of the anatomy of clothing. Cinematic rendering, a new form of computer tomography, reveals garments’ interior structures that are invisible to the naked eye.

Students’ designs have been shown by the internationally renowned photographer Günter Parth and Prof. Dr. Franz Fellner of Linz’s Kepler University Clinic. Parth has worked with fashion legends such as Vivienne Westwood and Paco Rabanne. Fellner heads one of ten radiology departments worldwide that are testing revolutionary new rendering software developed by Siemens Healthineers. In this case, though, the subject is not a naked human body but creations designed to dress it up in style.
