Blackspot

Fashion designers go open-source

Berlin-based Pamoyo is launching an experiment in open-source design.

Blackspot is an open-source brand. The first of its kind, as far as we know. What does that mean? Well, we retain the right to define the brand, but those who use it faithfully may use it free of charge. It belongs to the creative commons.

Now Berlin-based clothier, Pamoyo, is following in Blackspot’s footsteps by embracing the open-source principle. Springwise hears from founder, Cecilia Palmer, about the reasons why:

”We don’t make designs to protect them, but to spread them. The designs and patterns can be found on our website, and anyone can share it and use it. In this way, someone can take an idea or design and build on it. We want to make it possible to build upon each other’s work in such a thing as fashion design, and we’re planning to make a community platform out of that.”

Thanks for the link to Pamoyo! I'll have to try out their patterns sometime. You might also like Hacking Couture, which focuses on remixing fashion brands in the spirit of Open Source.

This is indeed a new concept for me that I did not even think that you can have open source in the manufacturing and design industry. I am sure that it is not a new concept however I can imagine that it is not at simple as in the world of software and coding which anyone one can take up and do. We create and produce many material using the joomla CMS system which is a pioneer in open source matters via our joomla tutorial service. It would be interesting to see the alliance of all things considered open source under one directory
