Abstract [en]

This work is an exploration of design possibilities within draping based on a knot. This to show alternative possibilities and expressions through the knot in construction of clothing. The knot serves as a draping tool, has a function in each garment and is also decorative.

The result is performed in 7 outfits based on experiments draped on a mannequin or my own body. The experiments are developed mainly through the branching strategy (Jones 1992)achieved with draping sessions in different materials, sizes and placements of the knot.

Having the knot as starting point allows alternative expressions in construction of well known garments. It is also suggesting a method of closing a piece of clothing using the garment itself which could be developed further in 2D pattern construction.
