Abstract [en]

This bachelor degree work explores the interrelation between print and form in fashion design. The aim of this work is to use the deconstruction of iconic flower prints to investigate the relation between form, print and the body through volume, padding and draping to achieve new expressions in dress.

The work is both textile and design driven and the main focus has been to investigate transfer print technique in relation to drawstrings, padding and quilting with focus to create and enhance different interesting forms in each flower print. Through the use of polyester fabric in different qualities additional possibilities are shown within the techniques.

The work strives to present a new design process and method that can be seen as a suggestion in how to achieve new expressions in dress. The value of this work is the new way of approaching the print technique in relation to shape within the fashion field. Through the interaction between fashion and textile, the collection challenge the traditional way of creating garments by letting the print decide the result.
