Design & Development
The design process during this project solely existed in the virtual space. The combination of traditional CADCAM software (Lectra Modaris) with more advanced 3D software (CLO3D) enabled me to play around with new constructions I couldn’t get my mind wrapped around. From a vague notion of how pattern pieces would circle around the body, I was able make these seemingly fanciful constructions come to life.
During this project I also learned how to read 3D garments in detail: how every little detail would behave in a real-life garment and how I could make sure my 3D garments would be as close to real-life as possible. This obviously needed some trial and error at the start, but eventually I was able to create my final physical garments straight from my 3D files, without any sampling in between.
