MINDTRIP: An exploration of mirror illusions in fashion design
University of Borås, Faculty of Textiles, Engineering and Business.

Abstract [en]

This work explores the interactive use of mirrored and reflective materials in the context of fashion. It draws parallels between the way in which it has been used in architecture in comparison to fashion and seeks a way to make a fair translation between the two mediums.

The motive behind this work lies in the curiosity to explore reflective mirror materials in clothing beyond simply as shiny surface materials and aims instead to explore its illusive properties when combined with archetypical pattern prints. This to explore the potential aesthetic expressions it could bring to the fashion field.

Using the theoretical approach of convergence, divergence, and transformation by Jones and methods by Thornquist that was slightly modified and reworked to fit the context of this project.

Investigations with the reflective material were tested in different scales, both by draping with the material as is and by cutting and placing it in different ways in relation to the printed textile material. Derived from these experiments a new illusive material was created with special draping and shaping properties that came to define the collection as a whole.
