Abstract

This design submission builds upon my previous scholarship, of creating garments that respond and support the wearer’s body, while maintaining sustainable design practices via mixed construction techniques and materials. Lindqvist’s (2015) kinetic garment construction theory served as the initiating platform for this project, an exciting draping methodology to create one-piece pattern garments that allow for body movement, but also by using excessive amount of fabric and resulting in high fabric wastage. Conceptual references to Icarus as a metaphor for engineered boundless movement guided the design process, resulting into an adaptation of Lindqvist’s (2015) published jumpsuit pattern, with added pattern versatility, garment aesthetics and near zero waste design.
