Creative Cutting Project
Twisting the kimono construction - Grad Dip CSM Fashion '15
RESEARCH - Draping & Creative Pattern Cutting
Being half-Japanese but growing up in Brazil, the kimono had always been an elusive piece to me until I moved to London and could buy my first one at a vintage market. Traditionally worn in a very constricting way and with many layers as not to show any skin, in this project I wanted to use similar geometrical pattern pieces to make a more dramatic silhouette that responded to dance and movement.
