Abstract [en]

How does one approach the human body when designing and use it as a tool for investigating to develop shape-expression in dress? For this research, the movement of the human body has been chosen as the base element to generate shapes from movement, to enable a form of visible objects. This has been accomplished by carefully studying the original movement of a human body through film. Looking att balance, direction and general shape. The new human body, which has been generated from this research, provides the viewer or creator a different perspective of the body in relation to the static body, which is regularly used in fashion design from the beginning of the design process. This research has been conducted to propose the importance of the human body as an active element in the beginning of the design process and to be viewed as a new platform of innovative design and artistic development in dress. In addition, to develop a contemporary understanding of the body’s role when designing and developing fashion design. By using the human body in motion for shape and form, in contrast to the regular static dummy/body or flat sketching, the collection challenges the standard methods of designing and applying techniques.
