First hand : a mobile digital application for the theatrical costume shop
MetadataShow full item record
First Hand began as a singular iPhone application designed to aid in the collection and dissemination of information within a costume shop. The project was created to push the boundaries separating the costuming world from current computer technologies. The integration of new computer programming is possible, but currently there are too few programs dedicated to the costuming field that often costumers become frustrated and disinterested. By creating a user friendly, simple, non-invasive application that focused on a single daily task, taking notes during a costume fitting, I hope to introduce costumers to the possibilities available to them in the near future. Since the start of this project First Hand has become an app development company geared towards the custom garment making industries including stage and film costuming and the fashion industry.
