Abstract [en]

People go to work and people go home. Playing out their roles and their lives, going in and out of character. We create our own characters depending on where we are and with who we are.

In this project a set of characters having a “casual Friday” at work has been interpreted. Working with the office dress codes and breaking them down.

The intention is to explore the relation between 2D-3D in garment and print, using distortion to create new silhouettes and characters. Inspiration is taken from 80´s movies set in the office space and 90´s casual wear.

Working without restrictions when combining transferprinted characters/garments and real garments where the “Casual Friday” theme is always present. Photos of real people were taken to keep an essence of reality throughout the line-up. The silhouettes, characters and garments created in Photoshop is based on how the de-signer would usually draw them with paper and pen.

What could be defined as missing today is the interpretation of 2D prints working it´s way towards 3D in a more direct way, as well as going from 2D to 3D in the line-up. To actually be able to put a nice silhouette together in the computer and then keep on working on that same silhouette on body. By working with transparent monofilament fabrics there is also great ways of what to show underneath.

The results show that the relationship between 2D prints and 3D garments is striking and a good source for new design solutions in garments. To cover one part of the body in 2D and then work on the rest in 3D has been restricting in a good way. New ways of altering the body has been found as well as new ways of constructing simple garments. By creating something strong in the stage of digital sketching made it possible to work in the same way practically. Keeping the flat 2D feeling even though you´re working with something in 3D.
