In this holistic project, every single piece of the collection was shaped using this method. Some of the pieces were crystallized into sculptures, using a technique adapted from naval architecture. Every pattern for each size is handcrafted and takes up to seventy hours of work.
While using an atypical way of pattern making, the anatomy and the movement of the human body naturally creates the sutures, diminishing “put-on” design.
All garments are created the same way. First a cast is formed around the moving human body, yielding the prototype pattern that will be used for the first prototype-clothing piece. This piece is then adjusted on the naturally created seams to reveal a final garment.
