Abstract [en]

This bachelor degree work investigates the change of the visual expression in motion. The movement of the body can change the garment´s appearance. The aim of this work is to explore how to change a garment´s visual appearance through movement and air, with the technique of pleats. The design method of this work has been to analyse the movement of a model when entering a catwalk. The air that effects the garment can change the garment´s volume. The method includes experiment with different techniques and material to analyse how the air can be used to change the garment´s appearance in volume. The result are various examples of air captured into the garment to change the garment from a minimalistic expression to a voluminous garment with light weight material. Print has been added to highlight the transformation and movement. This work shows the potential of working with a garment in movement and to gain a voluminous shape with the use of air. Light weight material has been used to create the shapes and this can be useful in the argument of sustainability in the textile industry.
