Abstract:

The constraints of the current COVID-19 pandemic stimulate the urge for fashion brands and designers to explore 3D technology and utilizing digital space for fashion creation. Being a fashion designer, this urge inspires me to situate my thesis project at the intersection of fashion and technology. I use research-creation as a research approach to engage differently with digital fashion design creation. During my research, I stumbled upon the ancient technique of origami and was drawn to the intricate technique it holds. I also see the possibility embedded in further manipulating the form of origami in digital space through image-based 3D reconstruction photogrammetry technique and 3D software. This thesis project aims to explore how digital body and digitized origami can be combined as an innovative method to influence and create digital fashion design. The creative outcome, Neo-Metamorphosis is a video formatted origami-inspired futuristic fashion runway show. Overall, my thesis project aims to explore new perspectives of digital fashion and stimulate artistic inspiration.
