ACCIDENTAL CUTTING is a fashion brand founded by the architect and fashion designer Eva Iszoro. She is also a college professor and a researcher in the field of creative and experimental pattern cutting. Moreover, she is the author of a new experimental pattern cutting method: Accidental Cutting, focused on finding, not looking for, non-existent volumes, through abstract, random and accidental cuts and patterns. Those three-dimensional shapes are applicable to any kind of design, not only fashion.
She holds the first PhD Thesis, that analyzes the new phenomenon of creative and experimental pattern cutting, in a global and general way from a methodological approach of design practice. The Accidental Cutting method is theoretically based on Chapter V of her PhD thesis (http://oa.upm.es/42727/). The thesis received the qualification of Cum Laude and the Extraordinary Doctoral Thesis Prize of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, promotion 2015/2016.

During the Covid 19 lockdown Eva Iszoro started to explore the virtual 3D construction. All of the last collection: “APOCALYPSE – the new reality” SS-21, inspired in the current pandemic situation, was created with specific 3D software. Meanwhile at London Fashion Week a totally virtual show will be presented based on this theme, while at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid it was a physical with real garments and models (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwt40QhlTaQ).
