CARRY A LIFE: The Exploration of How Carrying Affects The Expression of Wearing
University of Borås, Swedish School of Textiles.
2014 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Interested by the relation of function and fashion expression, this project choose ‘carry’ as an example function to dive in. It explores how ‘carry’ affects the expression of wearing and how it can be interpret into fashion expression. The research question - what do we carry in life - gives the foundation in the developing of an aesthetic for sustaining. Problem solving was the methodology that I adopted from Industrial design. Together with other methods, it helped me in deign rationale. During the exploration, ‘carry’ is analyzed, decomposed and translated into a conceptual collection. The interpretation of ‘carry’ is not functional oriented or literal-symbol inspired. The dynamic moment of functioning is more of the focus rather than a static expression of garment. In addition, minimized fashion expression is also discussed as the aesthetic of sustainability.
