Abstract [en]

This bachelor degree work investigates fashion as a non-verbal form of communication by the use of prints. Prints in fashion design today are categorized as placed prints or all-over prints. This work explores new dimensions in the use of a placed print by allowing it to interact with garment and body. It strives to take the prints within fashion one step further then just been pure surface decorations. With the main inspiration in T-shirt print design, the aim is to investigate the relation between halftoned, placed prints and garment by trying to achieve a depth within the expression. The main focus in the process is to find and define the depth within the printed textile and then to be able to apply it on garments on the body. Through research in material transparency in combination with screen printing, the work strives for a 3D moiré effect while moving. The work is to be seen as a suggestion of principles for interaction between prints, garments and body and to open up for a more complex way of working with prints within fashion. The combination between the striking 3D prints and the sharp black and white halftones creates a dynamic line-up. The collection provides the viewer with recognisable graphic pictures and elements as well as more abstract prints through layering. In this work it is found a possible technique to allow a message in a print to be communicated stronger. Through layering the printed textiles a new dimension were added to the expression in the motives and garments when interacting with the body. The continuation of this could be to try this effect with different motives and messages to be told. An interesting point of view would be to start with the viewer or receiver rather then the designers personal development in the project. It could possibly be as simple as creating a traditional T-shirt print with the message to communicate. Another alternative could be to carry out the communication of the motive in a whole garment and in how different garment types meet each other.
