The Universe And Art

After first consultation with both Joe and Jay, I needed to find more ideas for the Final Major Project. I was quite stuck on how to take different direction to the Zero Waste concept and I thought maybe visiting art galleries would help. There are a set of 3 museum tickets for the price of…

Major Project: First Proposal

Term break is ending and it is time to create a new collection series. I was excited yet nervous at the same time since this will be the last but also the most important one! I went to the national library to research and also read few articles from internet. I was planning to continue…

Hong Kong Trips: Preparation

This semester we have a module “Global Experience in Art & Design” which given us an opportunities to participate on a short international field trip which we are going to Hong Kong. There are quite a few thing need to be prepared before our trip. First since our school consist a lot of foreign students, some of…

Nagoya Fashion Contest 2017

This is the third competition of this year that we are applying for. There are three categories to apply which is Men, Women, and Children clothing design. I was taking the chance to do Children one since I don’t usually design for children which I which to try. I was inspired by “Medusozoa” which is…

Capsule Collection: Reflection

For this capsule collection, I challenged myself to use stretchy fabric such as double knit and neoprene which I rarely choose to create my collection. The second challenge was creating a sustainable design through zero waste drafting. As for the fabric manipulation part, I hand painted glow in the dark mix acrylic paint to the…

Capsule Collection: Full Monty

After a six months journey, we are finally done with this capsule collection! Here is a quick summary of the whole thing. I was inspired by the painting art in Gillman Barracks and decided with Graffiti concept to do self-painted fabric. Next, I incorporate Zero Waste technique to create my whole collection using words such ad…

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…
