Abstract [en]

The purpose of this work is to explore hair as a concept in relation to dress, by using the idea of tufting. As atextile technique tufting has been explored in fashion already, however fewer examples concerns shape andsilhouette, this could be challenge further. If approaching the technique as an idea, it opens up for technicalinterpretation, as well as its expression. Through this perspective of the technique, in combination with theinterest for material, addressing tuft as hair and approach shape as sculpture, a new manner of creatingsilhouettes could be developed.

Tufting consist of one material forcing its way through another one, similar to hair - hair through skin. Applyingthe concept, referring to the materiality of hair, documenting different states of them, they were materialised.The concept proved to provide a lot of ideas on how to treat tufting and along with the sculptural approach toshape, created dynamic garments. Working by hand gives a lot of freedom but also comes with agonising responsibilityon composition, the hand can sometimes be spotted in the outcome, therefore it had to be acceptedand embraced within this work. Through the concept and method, some unexpected materials emerged, sourcedand developed, extracted from the essence of hair, which all contributed to materialise this collection of HairDress.
