Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this design was to compose a minimalist ready-to-wear garment. Process: The process of this design began with extensive design development. Design development began with inspiration of several Christian Dior and Saint Laurent designs along with other inspirational images. Techniques: Draping was used to design the garment. Fabric was draped on a dress form and manipulated into the design. Darts were placed on the front and back bodices for proper fitting. Once the final look via draping was achieved the muslin was removed and the design was translated to paper patterns. A sample was made from the patterns and fit on the model. Final changes to the pattern from the fitting were made and, then, the final fabric was sewn together to complete construction of the design. Innovation: Simplification of design provides an alternative outlook to traditional outlooks. Materials: Silk, wool, and cotton fabrics, polyester yarn, and invisible zipper. This is one in a line of three garments; the entire line can be seen at the Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising spring fashion show, May 30, at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in Milo Smith Theater in McConnell Hall.
