[re]Generation Dress

There is a tension in fashion design between a sketch or vision and the actual fit of a garment. This tension requires extensive tailoring and must be tweaked for every individual. This tweaking can compromise the design vision. Through a series of iterations, I explored the material Tyvek, house wrap, by melt-molding, laser-cutting, and sewing.

Next, I constructed two dresses, one precisely the way I envisioned it and one with a flexible design fit to the body. These studies conclude that adaptability should be built in to fashion, culminating in a parametric design for a dress which adapts to every body shape rather than one model.
