final look

Lighting in the skirt represents the UV process used to transform the network of the skirt fabric into the printed body suit, and emphasizes the point in the design process where concepts transform into a finished product.

The body suit fabric is printed using UV reactive dye to achieve an inverted pattern of the layered yarn on the material.

Small pieces of sketch paper are layered in the yarn structure, representing how the early design process is built upon and is integral in a finished product

Description

This garment is a representation of the complex networks within a design process. Material from the skirt which represent the layering and complexity of the networks is in turn used to print the fabric for the body suit. This connection emphasizes how important these connections and networks are through the stages of design, from concept to finished product.
