Garment patterns, a two dimensional flat shape that acts as the template for garment production as it cookie cuts the fabric into shapes for it to be sewn, is often lost in the hierarchy of garment design.
We often recognize the design of clothing but garment patterns are lost as the sewn textile become 3-Dimensional.
This project seeks to convert the linearity of 2-Dimension to 3-Dimension into a circular experience.
Garment patterns, Garment, Textile all come into an equal shared experience of the final act.
Garment patterns are first generated by visual algorithms and through a series of processes two dimensional shape becomes three dimension.
Various textiles are used to ensure the importance of specific textiles in a collection is canceled out and each help in shape creation in its own way.
Garments are put together via a weaving mechanism which makes it completely reversible in process and garments can be pulled back into flat patterns.
