Description

Knitting is an old and often taken for granted art form, but to me, it is a brand new concept I have yet to to fully discover. As a fashion designer, I typically begin the construction of my garments with fabric. However, I wanted to understand how yarn becomes fabric and to explore the full processes of design and construction. I traveled to Fu Jen Catholic University to research machine knitting techniques. Using the pieces I knitted, I created a dress that features black accordion pleats at front as a focal point and black ribs on the back connected by a blue all knit strip. Blue cording was stitched at the hem and continuously run in the middle of the stole from one end to the other for texture and details. The dress can be worn with or without the spaghetti belt depending on personal preference and occasion.
