DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dreamers

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Garments

INSPIRATION:
The area I grew up in Taipei is a nice exotic neighborhood where there are a lot of foreigners from all over the world, I feel very fortune to live in this area that I’m able to make friends from different background and culture. One of my friends gave me a traditional African dress as a gift, then I just got deeply attracted to the colorful African wax print fabric and applied it as the inspiration of my collection.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The collection is mainly designed with African wax print fabrics and combined with other fabrics, for example, tweed, denim, wool and lace, to create fun, modern and trendsetter styles that give a fresh impression of African wax print fabrics that are normally used for traditional African attire.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
I started the collection by collecting African wax print fabrics as they are comparatively not so common in Asia. After coordinating the combination of fabrics and design sketches, I drew the clothing patterns and sewed the whole collection by myself, except the men's shirts were made by local tailors.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2013 and finished in July 2014. All garments were designed and made in Taipei.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
African Wax print fabric also known as “Ankara fabric” is a 100% cotton fabric with colorful tribal-like patterns and motifs, certain processes are necessary before production to prevent shrinking and color-fading.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The complete collection includes 14 pieces of garments.

TAGS:
African inspired, African print, wax print fabric

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
In order to transform the Ankara fabric a thicker and more endurable texture that presents a better quality of the garments, I've tried different kinds of interfacings to finally find a certain kind that suits the fabric and it doesn't reduce the softness yet supports the fabric to fit for corsets and jackets.
