Description

Merging unique apparel draping with sustainable design practices was the overarching purpose of the project to create an original design that will serve as a teaching example for apparel design curriculum. The final ensemble resulted from the exploration and manipulation of sheer and semi-transparent fabrics in zero waste draped design. A sheer outer garment was developed first by using the geo-cut method and includes a digitally engineered print to add to the value of the garment. A zero waste dress serves as a foundation for the outer garment and was inspired by Madame Vionnet and can accommodate a range of sizes. Other design considerations add to the sustainability of the ensemble to include careful materials selection to allow for repurposing or recycling. Ultimately, the garments provide a real-life teaching example for students to interact with in the classroom to encourage their own unique sustainable apparel design solutions.
