Abstract [en]

The aim of this work is to investigate a way of developing deconstruction through abstraction. It does so by looking in to borders. The borders created in between garments and sections in an outfit. Using techniques of reduction to abstract and de-construct garments. Going away from the physical aspects of a garment and instead starting out in the metaphysical aspects. Suggesting a development of deconstruction in fashion design. In the work borders acts as a cohesive element when observing garments. Rather then the architectural skeleton as in traditional deconstruction. Abstraction is used as a tool to separate the garment into essential aspects such as color, material and garment details. Which are then composed back again to define a certain garment. Creating a new perspective. The method circulates around a circular knitting jacquard machine, which possibilities and limitations which creates a framework for the method. Color compositions and materials are circular knitted and used to define borders for garments in an outfit. Flat knitting is used to add more complex knitted areas, such as rib garment details. The result is a series of examples on how to use abstraction as deconstruction through borders. By looking at materials, colours and garment details.
