Abstract [en]

This work explores the field of resort wear within women's wear fashion and the possibilities in development of creating wear by the act of wearing. It questions the meaning of resort, the behavior, life style and a state of mind that is creating wear in a certain context. Having resort wear as a starting point the motive is created by the way of wearing and is to explore the possibilities of evaluation in hierarchy in dressing by using a method of draping. The collection aims to develop a new construction method and wear by compression, using shapes from swimwear in a resort wear context as a draping tool. The work develops the idea of resort wear and is targeting the field from a new angle. The construction method is thereby essential forthe exploration of expression and shape. Resulting in a proposition of a method of construction and development through existing garment and non-existing three-dimension shape. The final result is an outcome of creating wear by a method and a context. Thereby the collection can be looked upon as an example of the possibilities in developing generalized garments with in a fashion field.
