Description

The fashion industry is constantly seeking innovation in design because of its systemic cycle where new, exclusive products are commonly adapted for popular taste levels and largescale diffusion, rendering those styles no longer desirable, and requiring the introduction of new styles to begin the cycle again (Ruppert-Stroescu & Hawley, 2014). Because fashion apparel products consist of materials encasing the body, creativity in fashion apparel design can be cultivated through exploration of new materials and through development of new pattern engineering techniques. The purpose of this study was to cultivate creativity in pattern engineering to foster ideas that are not only new and innovative but that eventually can be adapted to fit a range of taste levels and price points, contributing to the fashion industry cycle. To accomplish this goal, the researcher examined the work of innovative apparel designers, established criteria for fabric manipulation and developed a garment in half scale.
