Description

In this creative design research, the origin of slashing as a design detail that trended during the Renaissance period was investigated and interpreted to explore this design process. The main characteristic that I intended to deliver was a contemporary look that also conveys a strong concept of the bitter legacy of the era because, during the Renaissance, slashing was in fashion as an unintentional development after returning from the battlefield. I used an abundant slash decoration, along with a silver crinkle surface texture, glittering silver powdered surface, and silver and black transparent surface to express the spirit of the Renaissance fashion, which was considered an impressive display of luxury. Furthermore, a great amount of slashing over the jacket’s bodice was created in a traditional way, but the horizontal slashes with ribbon interlacing over the sleeves and skirts was intended to convey a contemporary look.
