TR Cutting School by Shingo Sato is just one of the many YouTube channels that could get me totally addicted for days. So many pattern-making ideas, and a totally alternative approach to 2D/3D pattern cutting. Must-watch...the following are just a few of the more popular videos.
Due to major renovations to the family
home, I have recently been paying more attention to interior design and
home decor stuff, which has led to a hunt for eco-friendly/upcycling DIY
options for certain singular items, such as light fixtures.
SO that's how it's done!
Pretty complex huh!
With the sheer trend in fashion still around, (it will always be around in bridal I guess?) it is also interesting to consider design ideas revolving around how elements of moving/travelling light, varying degrees of opacity and translucence, and sculpted material/fabrications interact with the movement of the human body...this reminds one of the experimental "emotional-sensing" SKIN clothing - integrated with moving light reactive to various environmental/physical changes- that Philips Design was doing before...
The garments, which are intended for demonstration purposes
only, demonstrate how electronics can be incorporated into fabrics and
garments in order to express the emotions and personality of the wearer.
The marvelously intricate wearable prototypes include
'Bubelle', a dress surrounded by a delicate 'bubble' illuminated by
patterns that changed dependent on skin contact- and 'Frison', a body
suit that reacts to being blown on by igniting a private constellation
of tiny LEDs.
And the inspiration hunt went quite naturally in a more performance art direction...super-cool stuff...
