Description

This dress was inspired by an experimental drawing titled CN-III, which used figurative representation and formal abstraction upon time, space and the sphere of existence of the artist via multilayered mediations. Thus, the purposes of creating this piece of wearable art were to: (a) experiment utilizing fabrics to emulate spatial relationships and (b) explore digital textile printing, 3D printing technologies, and handcraft techniques to transform a two-dimensional drawing to three-dimensional garment. The designer used digital textile printing technology as the main design concepts to transfer the CN-III drawing onto the fabrics. Three layers of the printed fabrics represented the multilayered mediations. The shoulder pieces were 3D printed that also inspired by the shape and patterns appeared in the drawing. The died butterfly wings embellished on the dress to enhance the 3-dimensional effect. The final garment serves as a physical record of both the artist’s and designer’s visual experience.
