Founded by Paula Sello and Alissa  Aulbekova,  Auroboros is a fashion house that merges science and technology with both haute couture and ready-to-wear fashion. This display will showcase a real-time growing couture gown worn by Ai-Da, the world's first artist robot. Mimicking nature’s life cycle, the gown will grow and fall apart during the festival. While the physical piece follows its own life cycle in the exhibit, the digital designs will be available to be experienced virtually using augmented reality, inviting you onsite and online to imagine a new era of design encompassing innovation, sustainability and immersion.  

Auroboros is housed at The Sarabande Foundation: founded by Lee Alexander McQueen. 
Display commissioned for V&A Digital Design Weekend.
