Abstract [en]

The aim of this practical reserach about the values of clothes is to contribute to a new design perspective of clothing. In this project, clothing and accessory designers are challenging their own tradition and their thinking about valuable design. The reserach deals with the question: How can we communicate selected values through garments and accesories?
