Description

Contextual Review and Concept: The contextual review for this design originated from the investigation of Rickard Lindqvist Kinetic Garment Construction Theory and his Shirt/Sphere design. Lindqvist theory is a method of garment construction that instead of using a traditional construction method of working inward by considering fabric or pattern first, Lindqvist method works from the body outward. In keeping with his theory, movement of the wearer’s legs and interaction with the fabric were considered with this design. This project evolved into a design that features a skirt that originates from the underside of the dress to transform from long to short. Review of transformative design reveals that they not only transform from long to short but can also grow, change, re-figure, reform, or re-structure. Transformable garments involve technologies that can convert them into different styles or silhouettes, thus reducing the need to purchase new garments and extend the garment’s lifecycle.
