Abstract

The purpose of this design was to create a modern dress infused with elements from historic buildings and garments that also explored the possibilities available through whole garment knitting. First commercialized in 1995, whole garment knitting is a relatively new technology in the fashion industry. Whole garment knitting, in addition to Shima Seiki’s Apex design software, offers several benefits to the fashion industry. The design software allows designers to see a virtual rendering of their garment before it is ever knitted, helping to save time and resources during the sampling process.
