TV reality shows like Project Runway (and performance artists like Lady Gaga) stretch fashion design to its breaking point.Project Runway competitors have created wearable clothes out of some rather imaginative materials, such as newspaper, burlap, hardware, and auto parts.Also, many top fashion designers have dabbled in eco-friendly textiles, and there are a number of International runway events devoted entirely to designs made from recycled materials.This project appeals to the fashion designer in you.
What determines the quality of a garment?
What recycled materials can satisfy the requirements of a wearable garment?
Terms and Concepts to Start Background Research
Research related materials (see bibliography shown below and terms listed above)
Search and print out images of fashion models wearing recycled garments, and any other fashion photos that interest you.
Collect recycled materials that you think might be usable for clothing design.These could include plastic bottles, aluminum cans, toys, lampshades, umbrellas, whatever!Push your imagination to the limit.Keep in mind that ideally, clothing should be comfortable, washable, well-fitting, lightweight, warm enough, durable, and appealing to the eye.Also, according to Project Runway’s Tim Gunn, wearable means you should be able to get in and out of a car while wearing it.But it’s really up to you, the designer.
If you already know how to sew, make 3 or 4 simple, identical garments out of ordinary stretch cotton.If you don’t sew, use 3 or 4 identical white cotton T-shirts.
Draw sketches of your design ideas.Use color in your sketches.
Cut selected materials into appropriate shapes for your design.
Sew (or securely attach in some other way) the shapes onto each garment.
Have models try on the garments, and make necessary adjustments.
Photograph each garment, as worn by the model.
Explain your ideas in a detailed report.
Include a live runway fashion show in your science fair display.
