Prototype 5

Due to the deadline, I painted the fabric before I sew the first toile which is quite a dangerous decision. If the toile is not working I might need to adjust the zero waste pattern and the sizing might change and the fabric might be wasted. Thank god there is only minor change that I…

Prototype 5 – Toile

After lining up all of my four looks together, I feel like I need to add another look using neoprene fabric because only my Prototype 2  is using neoprene with a hint of grey. With less than 1 week before final week, I tried to revisit my previous zero waste plan that I did not…

Prototype 4

Since there is not much time to try out the new master plan, I proceeded on sourcing and paint the fabric within the day so that the pain will be dry the next day and ready for cutting. Previously I have used each color combination to each prototypes such as yellow combination with green, pink…

Prototype 4 – Toile No.3

Following several trial and errors, I reviewed the Zero Waste Fashion Design by Timo Rissanen book again and also my sketchbook. I notice that I have changed the way of creating my zero waste pattern. Previously making the pattern was instantaneous and random, while the recent one is more planned and calculative which restricted me…

Prototype 4 – Toile No.2

Updates of the previous post. Since the toile does not look like a dress, I tried on recreating basic dress silhouette but make the pattern become a zero waste plan. I tried to create a mermaid silhouette because it is the most interesting to recreate as a zero waste plan. The other silhouette are easier…

Prototype 4 – Toile No.1

Next on my challenge list would be making a dress zero waste pattern. I combined both of my name and create this pattern. I never worked with so much alphabets in previous design because most of it only consist of three to four. I like the structure created from the first few drape. My fabric…

Prototype 3

Here I am back after my Prototype 3 – Toile. I was inspired by two piece set outfit and thought why don’t I make both top and pants in one zero waste pattern. So I made another toile for this look 3 with a little tweak to the master plan. I need to widen the top…

Frankfurt Style Awards 2017

Frankfurt are celebrating their 10th anniversary with “Modern Reality” motto. There are three categories which are #working #sporting and #dating. I was interested in doing #working because I love doing a formal wear design. Maia means bravery, courage, confidence. I want to convey that modern women does not need a support of a man to…

Prototype 2

Finally my prototype 2 is here! After trying out from Prototype 2 – Toile (Part 1) and Prototype 2 – Toile (Part 2), here is the process of creating my zero waste Jacket. After my first painting, I realize that I should not color the whole fabric. This time I only colored both end of the fabric…

ECOCHIC 2017

Toward the first semester break, our lecturer introduced us to EcoChic competition and I joined to hope to get experience through this contest. I participated this competition by using the zero waste technique (since I am currently developing my own pattern). T.H.O.U.G.H.T means the emotion behind our mind and I transferred those emotion as lines…

Prototype 3 – Toile

I have done a skirt and a jacket for Prototype 1 and Prototype 2. So I was thinking to make a pants zero waste pattern. I already tried a few pants pattern from Zero Waste Fashion Design (Timo Rissanen & Holly Mcquillan) book. So I developed the pattern and incorporated my name into the master plan. I…

AARDS 2017

I am grateful that our school provides a lot information about design competitions which are great opportunities for us, young designer to get more exposure. This year is the third year Airasia Runway Design Search. The main title is ASEAN. Since I am currently studying in Singapore, I took the architecture around here as my…
