Event Title

Digital Dilemma

Presentation Type

Design

Description

The purpose of Digital Dilemma was to create a woman’s ensemble designed to (a) explore alternative methods to access the technology of engineered digital textile design and (b) create complex engineered digital textile designs through varied processes to work with the sculptural seamlines and silhouette of the ensemble. Although the finished ensemble is presented as full scale garments, the entire design process of flat patterning, mocking up the muslin, digitizing the pattern pieces, and engineering the textile print were created completely in half scale. New possibilities of how traditional half scale use can be reinterpreted to suit the needs of the digital user are of interest, especially to those involved in online design studios.
