Description

Dedication to social responsible actions has been a large part of the designer’s design research and development. Investigating various and unique techniques to incorporate sustainable practices into her design exploration. A previous design Heirloom Elegance was created by re-purposing heirloom textiles utilizing post-consumer waste. Pre-consumer Fusion addresses the fabric waste from apparel manufacturing. The approach for this design is Julian Robert’s Subtraction Cutting: The Tunnel Technique. This method of pattern development is unconventional, not concerned with outward shapes instead with negative spaces within the garment by which the body travels through. The results are unpredictable and unique, while reducing the waste generated. This design can be worn in various ways depending on the circles that your body passes through. Looking beyond the current throwaway approach.
