Abstract

Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto expresses a sentiment: ‘Allowing space between the garment and body is of tremendous importance ... it gives the wearer the possibility of inhabiting the garment naturally, without being restricted by a predetermined form ...’ The authors worked with fashion students in 3D and 2D. The only constraints were that the shirt must contain the standard neckline with a 2-piece collar, a straight shirt placket and a cuff. The garments tell a visual narrative that questions proportion, silhouette, volume and movement, and develops tactile knowledge.
