Event

Description

As a sustainable strategy for fashion design, redundant or damaged textile waste can be refashioned and add new value through the process of upcycling. While designers can remanufacture fragments to create original garments by making use of this post-consumer waste, one challenge is to standardize one garment into a set or series as conventionally designed and produced clothing since material supplies are irregular and quantities unpredictable. Previous studies have explored the use of secondhand men’s tailored jackets and neckties to recreate evening wear by utilizing inspirations from Chinese cultural elements. This design is a continuation of study on the use of upcycling combined with the concept of cultural inspiration to further determine the potential of production efficiency in upcycled designs. Furthermore, all the pieces from the original jackets have been utilized to create the design, despite small trimming for appropriate fit, in order to prevent any further textile waste.
