Hacking traditional manufacturing processes and manipulating materials in unexpected ways defined Todd Oldham’s fashion design methodology—characterized by reinterpreting and reimagining embroidery, wool, crystals, dyes, sequins, and even historic textile manufacturing methods. Oldham and Wendy Goodman, design editor at New York magazine, reflect on this intensive design process in the context of the 1990s, and discuss how Oldham’s innovations to garment-making standards reverberate today.
