Event Title

Intertwined Happiness

Description

White wedding gowns are commonly used by brides today; meanwhile red is the most prominent color in traditional Chinese wedding dress. The purpose of this exploration was to create a reversible design that can meet both traditional Chinese style and western romance by using a combination of knitting technology and handcraft skills in overstock cotton yarns. The multiple-wear design would be ideal for a series of wedding events for women who desires distinct aesthetics and sustainable concept. Additionally, the two pieces in the ensemble can be worn separately with different styles or items for other occasions which would satisfy a woman's need for comfort, identity, and versatility. Through this design, two collaborators came together aiming to combine their scholarly interests of knitwear and culture with a clear intent on challenging the knit development techniques through shape and surface using the a Stoll CMS-3 ADF knitting machine and M1plus software.
