Abstract

The purposes of this design were to: (1) fuse the techniques of Chinese painting and art philosophy with Western garment silhouettes; (2) experiment with nuno felting technique as a dart replacement technique to achieve “zero waste†in the garment, which is tenant of sustainable design; and (3) apply a variety of textile surface design and handcraft techniques to silk fabrics throughout the garment, such as heat/wet felting, silk painting, hand beading, and bead embroidery. The silk chiffon and 8mm silk organza were nuno felted to achieve the goals of “zero waste†and “biodegradable†. This design demonstrates that nuno felting can efficiently replaced the darts to fit the garment on the body.
