Molded fibers becoming a dress: “Wrapped Garment” project by Jungeun Lee

July 22, 2011

RCA student Jungeun Lee  has been experimenting a new technique for creating garment. By molding fibers around the body, she is able to create fabrics and garments with unexpected textures and shapes.

This project caught my interest for two reasons. The first thing is that the”wrapped garment” project  calls into question the definition of a textile: here the technique uses non woven fibers, yet we can still call it a fabric. The second element is that the garment results from a modelling technique , meaning that its shape doesn’t come from the developpment  of a pattern construction, but directly by applying the fibers on the body.

 

 

P.S: it seems that even shoes are made using the same process.
