Abstract [en]

The field I’m working in is “design through construction”. Construction as a field in fashion design when creating has expanded and there are many views upon how one can work whit-in this field. I’m working with a cut and then bending or displacing it through placing it on the body so it creates volume which starts from its vertex. One could say that it works like an inverted dart. This way to work has a potential to create volume that stands out from the body without using standard ways e.g. like adding a new pattern piece or build a crinoline. It might answer to the question: How can one create shape or arrange shape without adding anchor points? Therefor I explore the relation between body and shape through inverted dart. I’ve been executing experiments through a trial and error method diverged in three steps when in the physi- cal part examine my aim in tests based on the body pressing a cut apart which gives an effect in the vertex of the cut. Through my research I’ve have come to a conclusion that the body in itself can transform garment trough an inverted dart by stepping into it. The relation between the body and material through the inverted dart has qualities were body can arrange dress and define it trough folding fabric and body can through the inverted dart make room for itself. This idea and development is relating to the basics when make dress, body and material and how we can work whit these opponents. Instead of thinking about new variables like new technical tools, e.g. the laser cutter when pushing boundaries one can also take new turns with basics. In this work the body defines dress through the inverted dart (an interaction between body and dress) and create new ways of handling fabric and shape. This perspective on design and art can also been used when working in other fields when distort basic prin- ciples to create new expression. As an example there might be possibilities to develop basics in architecture by studying society and therefore understand fundamental values in this field and, how you by change these variables can develop design.
