Event Title

Archimedean Flare

Description

The purpose of this design was to create a contemporary garment inspired by the colors of nature that blends hand crafted weaving techniques with digital pattern making technology. Using both hand weaving and digital textile print technology, an optical illusion is formed from the expressed juxtaposition of gradient colors and the resulting patterns arising from the woven spiraling concentric curved strips. This design is unique and original using both engineered digital textile printing and hand weaving techniques to weave curved semi-circular strips of decreasing widths to create a distinctive spiral radial woven pattern. The quilted jacket showcasing the original textile pattern also adds a one of a kind look. This collaborative design project was able to integrate technology and hand craft techniques that was inspired by the radial geometric growth patterns and colors found in nature creating a contemporary garment that can be worn in a versatile ways.
