The art of design conceptualisation through patterns and drapes
The story of a Thalassophile
SS2018 AT ANNA SUI
A self driven project showcasing the entire journey as a designer , pattern cutter and garment constructer .
The whole idea of bringing in new designs that add value to culture, art and history could be created with inspiration from great pieces in the past. From referencing great pattern making books to understanding technical aspects of garment construction, from allowing yourself to freely manipulate patterns to random drapes that forms a sensual design, this is a journey showcasing an ability to have a great collaboration between the clients and the designers.
On a broader perspective , this project also involves amazing seamstresses from remote areas of South India working on experimental patterns and garment construction. This is what sense of inclusivity in fashion today means.
This mini documentary showcases the process of arriving at designs through the core process of pattern drafting and drapes . Watch out the whole journey and collection now.
