Feeling butterfly Wearable Art by Meiyi Cheung

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Feeling butterfly

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wearable Art

INSPIRATION:
Would fashion be made without stitches and thread? Would any evening gowns made of cheap material without scarify the elegance and glamorous? These questions lead me to create a dress made of plastic without any stitching nor thread. Inspired by the interlocking loops of knitwear, and the blue tones of ocean, I finally create this dress to challenge the traditional fashion sewing, and the conventional concept of "value".

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Inspired by the structure of knitwear, sheets of plastic and E.V.A are cut into rows of loops and then hand interlock one by one to form the whole dress. This structure turns the dress stretchable to follow any body shape, and able to form an ombre effect from blue to translucent colorless. This is made without one stitch nor thread yet it is as elegant and sexy as an traditional evening dress. With dozens of butterfly cutouts ooped around the dress, the wearer would feel very much butterfly.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The outfits are made of loop-shaped plastic hand knitted row by row. With the loop shape and interlocking structure, the dress and tops are stretchable to fit different body shapes. The interlock technique is used to hold the butterfly cut out decorations. When the wearer moves, the butterflies on the surface will thrill as real butterflies.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2014 in Hong Kong and the technique is still under usage in other fashion design. There are total 3 pieces of designs in same interlocking technique. All were exhibited in China and Hong Kong and showed on stage in different catwalk shows, such as "Glam Fusion" catwalk at the HK SZ Fashion Week in Sept 2014; "HK Fashion Fete" catwalk at SZ fashion week in June2015, GR8 Hullet House 10th Anniversary fashion show in Sept 2014.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging stage is the calculation of loop size to fit body measurement, and the interlocking process. It's easy to miss one loop. Just one mistake would ruin the dress and need to restart the interlocking. When it comes to mixing color for a smooth and natural ombre effect, high focus and imagination is a must.
