Fashion and technology
In her 2015 collection, Flora Miranda first dealt with the idea that the Internet frees the individual from control and that cyberspace is a place of individual development. The collection marks the beginning of a research that the designer has been pursuing ever since.  Flora Miranda made her debut with "Pneuma" in January 2018 at the Paris Haute Couture Week. In this show, the designer staged for the first time a performance  instead of a traditional catwalk , which is their trademark to this day. For the designs of her Spring / Winter 2018 collection, the designer had antique clothes in museums 3D-scanned and created from the data with the help of an algorithmher own digital design, which she finally made by hand with silicone-coated threads.  The LaLaLand collection was also based on a computer-aided design, while Cyber Crack (created and presented in cooperation with Esther Stocker and Alec Empire ) addresses the influence of IT corporations on personal life.
