The Nature of Fashion : the connections between biology and fashion
I have not found a thread about this and I think it's an important item for design, who it's no only a communication and functional discipline but also technological and artistic.

Quote:
Bionics: is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology.Wikipedia
I only know those collections inspired in bionics but I would love to know more, and to hold all them in this thread.

Note: It would be nice if we put the piece of design in the left and the biological organism in the right

Thierry Mugler made a collection inspired by insects, but I don't remember the season, maybe someone with catwalking.com password could search for it?

great topic!

when i have more time i will post some examples i can think of.

i think one of the campaigns for comme des garcons's "dress becomes body..." shows close-ups of the clothes next to similar images from nature.

here are some claude montana sunglasses:

pic: ebay

i wonder if this topic should go in the "fashion in depth" forum otherwise it may get buried here.

aside from les insectes, the collection mentioned and shown by perickles, i think mugler used insects as inspiration quite often throughout his career.

i hate to nit pick...

*especially since i really like the direction of this thread...
but bionics would seem to me to be more about technology and engineering...
ie- the bionic man or woman...

these designs seem to be inspired by biological elements...
but i don't think a dress that has the colours of a butterfly can be called bionic...
...

HUSSEIN CHALAYAN is the only designer i can think of that has used bionics in fashion...
ie- his shape shifting dresses...

i think we need to clarify the title of the thread here...
