Abstract

The goal of this design was to utilize apparel design as a communication tool to represent the relationship between fashion, the human body, and natural scenery. The question we asked was how we can aesthetically appreciate the natural environment and how can we express the conceptual and material values of the relationship between fashion and natural scenery through the application of digital textile printing, digital pattern making, and textile designs. The designers explored methods for creating textile prints based on photographs of the Upper Antelope Valley from the first author’s own photo collection and utilized the structures of pattern making to express the flowing textures on the rock. This design demonstrates a successful design process, translating representational photographs of natural scenery into non-representational textile prints. The silhouette and structure of the garments are integrated with digital textile printing technology by strategically planning intricate digitized pattern pieces and the textile prints.
