TO MAKE CLOTHES THAT MATTER - FROM TRADITION TO NEW DESIGN AESTHETICS

A project from The Swedish School of Textiles, Boras, Sweden

 

THE IDEA

Many years of fast consumption of fashion and clothing have enforced us to search for new solutions. To capture a new design perspective, we need to understand the values of clothes. This project looks at how we can design clothes which express selected values, in order to make clothes that matter.

 

CONCLUSION

During fall 2013, designers from various traditions have met at the Swedish School of Textiles to participate in this project. They discussed the value of expression, tradition and techniques and eventually created pieces ought to communicate selected values. All pieces were photographed and are accessible in a web-based exhibition launching December 16, 2013. Here, the audience can scroll around to see the backsides of the outfits and accessories and zoom into the details. Enter the exhibition "To make clothes that matter" here.
