Description

Lucent is a lightweight and waterproof activewear jacket, achieved by exploring creative pattern making by using a half-scale dress form design process. The initial prototype of this jacket was draped on an Alvanon half-scale dress form. The experience of designing in half-scale was an iterative process with contemplative reflecting on the process. Iteration is an integral part of the design process because the making of iterative prototypes underwrites a process of critical thinking beyond the first solution. This method contributed to the creative development of the work by facilitating discussion and iteration. The half-scale sample challenged me to think beyond the initial design. The iterative half-scale process facilitates a dialogue between the creator and the object, sparked new ideas, clarified ideas, and reignited the creative process.
