  67. susanlawrence says:

    I think this is and amazing idea and would love to have my rescue dog all over the dress as I love wearing dresses. the innovation of this company is amazing- and I will be shopping as I save for a special dress- perhaps a trapeze design !

  70. thumbelina says:

    My design: “Dutch Tree”
    When a tree was meant to be a dress.

  71. ollie131 says:
    This design is based off of a pencil and ink sketch I did for a series called “barnacles.” It would be so great to have a dress constructed out this drawing!

  72. fiza says:

    i created this dress using a graphic image that i took of the underside of a water reservoir.

  73. valentine says:

    Super fun! Now I want my design. Very Flowery!

  76. fiza says:

    Geoffery bawa, the famous Sri lankan architect created this enchanting ceiling inspired by the native batik textiles. i photographed this ceiling on my trip to Sri lanka and it has now inspired a graphic print for this dress. From textile to architecture to photograph to textile!!

  77. Okay, I might like it better in the silk sheath style:

  78. fiza says:

    An abandoned piece of furniture in an abandoned haunted colonial hotel makes for a haunting photograph and an equally impactful graphic print on this dress. would love to wear it!

  82. fiza says:

    An abandoned piece of furniture in an abandoned haunted hotel makes for a dramatic picture and an equally dramatic graphic print dress. would lovee to wear this baby

  83. anamikic78 (@anamikic) says:

    My proposal is dress designed by using my digital art.

    Thank you for a lovely competition.

  84. zoescope says:
    rough and tough, ready to party

  85. fiberfusing says:

    from natural print to digital print, how cool is that. I couldn´t stop making. Here is one of the collection talking leaves

  86. jaeshields says:

    I was inspired by the intricate ceiling of King’s College Chapel, Cambridge. In the source photo taken recently by my husband, I noticed the affinity of its geometry and structure to the human body. I love the customization of the clothing from constrvt!

  87. Monica Lid says:

    What a pity – upload there is not working anymore…

  88. naturalsuccess says:

    I’m not able to see my design :( but I Love my picture :)…

  89. honebfly (@sunkissedhealth) says:

    Thank you Ecouterre for leading the way for sustainable fashion! And much gratitude to CONSTRVCT for creating this beautiful technology. I have already spent hours and hours on it (oopsies!)

    Please look closely at my design, there is a hidden image in it that even I couldn’t see until I used this design interface. There are also many forest devas (or nature spirits). I took this photo of a sacred Banyan tree while traveling in India. Looking at it helps me to stay grounded and connect with nature:

  90. LynanSap (@@LynanSap) says:

    Amazing contest! Followed all the steps would love to win!
    This dress is amazing and I love ecouterre!

  91. nclark88 says:

    so much fun to play designer with this! love it!

  92. Kyzclawok says:

    Here is my favorite picture and you’ll see why…

  93. ninelai says:

    When I first read about CONSTRVCT, I thought it would fit perfectly my aspirations about using fashion design to communicate to people my research into the good applications of fungi and the beauty of these organisms. I have used one of their images to create this dress:

  94. inikoa says:

    Here is my dress:


  95. lwjohnson (@LinWalkJohn) says:

    So happy to be introduced to Constrvct and Ecouterre!

    My design is from the Seattle Public Library- designed by Rem Koolhaas’ firm OMA.

  97. MichelleBuchanan says:

    This is my design based on one of my paintings. Wow, loved doing this!
    Michelle Buchanan

    and if anyone wants to see some of my other artworks on dresses:

    Too much fun.

  98. fiza says:

    Bokeh in a photograph from a religious festival in pakistan. turned into a gorgeous print

  99. edavis (@giraffetale) says:

    As an architect, I love to play with scale. Using a photo I took of the Sydney Opera House, the geometric tile pattern looks almost like a natural animal skin when mirrored and placed on the dress. I tried to align the slight building curvature to flatter the female figure. It would look great styled with nude patent pumps or a pop of fuschia!

    Constrvt is simply an awesome concept with great execution! I was obsessed with the Continuum duo’s D.Dress and admire this new line just as much. Keep up the amazing work!

  100. edavis (@giraffetale) says:

    Working with a little more color, the structure of the Perth Maritime Museum is placed to structure the lines of the dress and flatter the figure:
    I also happen to be a sucker for any chevron ;)

    Thanks again for hosting this great competition!

  101. cs5934 says:

    So fun and simple! Great idea for a website!

  102. annsj84 says:

    I absolutely love this concept and for my design I chose a picture from one of my favorite places in the entire world, along the Yarra river bank.
    (not sure which link is the best)

  103. k377y says:

    My dress is allows you to be in the forest everyday.

  104. GiMo says:

    This is the dopest web application ! Thank you for excising !

  105. gimo says:

    I can’t stop applying my design on dresses! I’m in love with CONSTRVCT!

  106. katygmorris says:

    I had a blast making my designs! I had to finally force myself to stop after five. I had a tough time choosing one, but finally picked a picture I took of a friend’s band. We all had such a great night, and I’d love to immortalize it with a dress!


  107. edavis (@giraffetale) says:

    As an architect, I love playing with scale. Using a photo I took of the Sydney Opera House, the geometric patterning of the tiles looks a bit like a natural skin or animal print. The slight curves of the building are placed to to be figure flattering. I’d love to style it with nude pumps or a punch of fuchsia!

    I’ve been a fan of the Continuum girls since the d.dress and would love to see my hours playing with their amazing applications come to life. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

  108. Adorna says:

    I designed this dress with one of my Plein Air Paintings. You can see my blog about the painting here:

    I loved how many different looks I could get from this one painting. I think this dress would look awesome for Easter! I can’t wait to try more of my paintings and photos as dress designs.

  109. gimo says:

    So much fun! Thank you for hosting this wonderful competition !!!

  113. alainaw83 says:

    This is a photo i took of my small town on the first snow day :)

  114. FabriceAndThania says:

    soooo, i played with this image i took of the capri landscape on photoshop. Voila!

  115. akc0625 says:

    I’ve always loved the intersection of design and technology, so I couldn’t resist using an image of a responsive sculpture I designed and built alongside two classmates.

    It’s overlayed with two shades from pantone’s spring 2013 colors to give it a punch of colorblocking in the background!

  116. dayziemayhem (@gg2g) says:

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity ! As an artist/designer I’ve always wanted to be able to experiment with making my own printed fabric. It was interesting to utilize the different options, to create such strikingly different effects. Love CONSTRVCT’s and Ecouterre!!!!

  117. livelongday says:

    I’m in love with street art, hence my design from a photo I took in the Netherlands. I call it AmsterDAMN!

  118. gimo says:

    It’s so cool,I can’t control myself and I just found out about CONSTRVCT this morning! Can’t think of how many more I would’ve done if I knew in advance….

  119. addisgut says:
