Abstract [en]

This work investigates the relationship between volume, form, and material. More precisely this work aims to explore volume as a construction technique through processes of gathering in relation to sportswear material.

I do this in the search for non-binary expressions in menswear that could help reduce polarization between gender in dress and suggest alternative methods for already existing construction techniques.

In this project, I work with the interrelations between volume and material connotations to create a tension between material and form, and the relation between volume and gathering to investigate new alternatives for construction.

What I present here is an alternative approach for flat pattern construction and draping. The fundamental idea for the methodology is based on reducing the construction process to as few steps as possible to acknowledge the notion of simplicity in construction. So instead of focusing on multiple steps in the construction to find harmony in relation to the body, I focus on one action or fewer steps to define the garment.

Furthermore, this work suggests alternative expressional possibilities and meanings to the discourse of polarization between gender in dress.
