CULTIVATING THE PROCESS …

Prior to this project I was tasked with formulating a research proposal. The following written works are excepts.

“The pattern is me: it reveals my thinking, my actions, my hands, my movements, my personality as a designer.”

Much like Julian Roberts (2013, p. 85), I am my pattern cutting. That revelation has

inspired and resulted in a project dedicated to cultivating this. This project ultimately aims to be the start of me gaining a greater understating of how I design. My own practice-led methods and processes, alongside the research of others work, will support current ideas and inspiring new ones. Like other alternative pattern cutting designers, Holly McQuillan and the fore mentioned Julian Roberts, my practice focuses on designs dictated by pattern cutting. Within this research, the consideration of my main fixed parameter, only using straight lines, may provide problems to overcome. These may include creations of 3-Dimensional forms; fabric waste and fabric choice; considerations of the human body’s size, shape and form. Each of these points will need to be explored to overcome the issue, and allow for a greater knowledge base when faces with new problems. With these points in mind, an identification of a user or market must be established. This is to guide the resulting product, garment, towards appropriate functions, fabrics and aesthetics.

The conclusion of this project would establish further paths to explore. I am not

approaching this project from a zero waste perspective, but the process could lend itself to address this issue in further research. Outside of fashion, the methods could be used to address design issues within other creative disciplines. The creative context allows for many avenues to direct other potential research projects.

Preface


CU R ATO R

10


Using a specific process as an informed reference of design is not something we consciously consider. Throughout our university study, we are taught a relevant process which can become a natural routine. Historically within fashion education, it has been advised that designing is achieved through drawing skills or sketching, with pattern cutting and construction as skills separate or subservient (McQuillan, 2015a). For some, this outlined process does not work.

Holly McQuillan, a pioneer in the practice-led research of zero waste design, provides

a positive response regarding different ways to approach fashion design. McQuillan talks of the opportunities that integrating design and pattern cutting can result in, ideas that would not have been discovered otherwise (2015a). Being a zero waste designer, McQuillan understands why the reconsideration of integrating designing and pattern cutting is a key way to resolve issues such as fabric waste. However, she admits that a high concern for eliminating fabric waste should not have to jeopardise aesthetic or fit (2015b). Although my work is not categorised as zero waste, McQuillan points out two designers who have experimented with rigid geometric shapes as an alternative pattern process (2015a). “In the mid-1980s Yoshiki Hishinuma (1986) created garments entirely from triangles of fabric… In 2009 Tara St James showed the first collection of Study NY, titled The Square Project… The first look on the runway was made from one square of fabric, the second from two squares, and so forth” (McQuillan, 2015a, pp. 20-21). St James’s collection was zero waste, while Hishinuma’s was not, it still showed great potential as an approach within a zero waste context. Like zero waste as a limitation, others can also result in the discovery of new designs.

Another advocate for designing through pattern cutting is Julian Roberts. His method,

subtraction cutting, creates shapes by removing fabric, rather than the addition of it. This practice follows a similar theory to McQuillans, that the patterns and their creative activity can form the designs. He describes this activity as being physical, but also psychological, “the mind and its perception of spatial awareness… [the] process of transferring of ideas and concepts into 2-Demsional patters, which then construct in 3D” (Roberts, 2013, p. 13). This process is not exempt from risk, chance, luck and hope, Roberts admits that sometimes you can mess up, but the mistakes can form outcomes that are better than hoped for. “Everything seems to start with a problem. A problem I must solve, a problem I must overcome, or a problem I must create” (Roberts, 2013, p. 84). Some basic ideas of subtraction cutting provide a new perspective regarding the relationship between the 2D and 3D. Geometric lines and 2-Dimensional plans are abstractions, which can help explain how something may be made, yet what is made, the result of transforming this information in 3D, is not always apparent (Roberts, 2013). This can easily be seen within Robert’s ‘plug technique,’ where he shows that any shape can fit into any void, even if they are different shapes, provided they have the same perimeter. Within my work, the ‘plug technique’ has become a natural part of the process, due to my use of easy-to-measure straight lines.

During multiple design projects, I have come to understanding that my own ways of

generating design are not that of the taught framework. Much like McQuillan and Roberts’ work, my process focuses on pattern cutting with set parameters as a way to generate an outcome. As I continue to cultivate this process, the methods that aid its development have started to take shape. 11

Preface


TOOLS OF THE TRADE When talking to people who aren’t familiar with sewing, fashion, or textile lingo, there’s lots of confused faces. Simple terms which we often throw around amongst ourselves go over many people’s heads, as I can imagine happens within most disciplines. I’m hoping to break down these over-used terms into easilydigestible explanations.

SCISSORS Their names are pretty self-explanatory. Fabric scissors have long blades and should be used for fabric only, as paper blunts them. Paper scissors have shorted blades and are used on paper. Snips, often seen hung around peoples necks, are used to snip threads on the run.

SET SQUARE A ruler and keeper of the right-angle. How anyone can manage to make a perfect square without one is beyond me.

GRID PAPER The foundation of my design process is built on using ruled and dotted grids. 2mm and 5mm grid paper has been my go-to of choice.

CU R ATO R

12


CALICO MASKING TAPE This paper tape is often underrated. Most go for it when patternmaking, as a cheap alternative to the clear pattern tape, yet I, amongst others, consider it one of the most useful tools. Whether taping paper maquettes, or full sized calico toiles, it always comes in handy.

Sometimes called muslin, calico is cheap, readily-available cotton. The unbleached (offwhite/cream), $3p/m, is the first option, but a stiffer bleached (white), $4p/m, version is also available.

TOILE [TWAHL] Fashion’s fancy word for prototype. We make toiles to test our patterns and finishings.

FUSING

FUSING TAPE

Short for ‘fusible interfacing’ is a textile with an adhesive coating on one side, which when heated, allows another textile to fuse with it. Fusing is often used to stiffen or strengthen certain areas of fabric.

Masking tape’s cousin.

AKIN

THE CURATED WARDROBE AKIN is the result of dedicated research and development into further cultivating my design methods and processes. My main design parameter is only using straight lines. Hidden complexities, natural formations and architectural edges are the combination of my alternative patternmaking techniques which inform AKIN’s curious aesthetic. AKIN is for anyone, but not for everyone.

A magazine is a medium in which a collection of written work may be published. Content is dependent on the magazines aim or theme and even more so the target demographic. The target demographic of a magazine is usually focused on lifestyle and shared interests. The slow lifestyle magazine, Kinfolk, published quarterly since 2011, epitomises the target market of my collection in its readership. Their content is intelligent, well informed and expresses the importance of living a more creative, simple and connected life. The Entrepreneurs Issue (issue 15, released March 2015), The Essentials Issue (issue 16, released June 2015), and The Family Issue (issue 17, released September 2015) highly reflect this.

The Entrepreneurs Issue (15) starts by bringing us 12 business minds definition of an entrepreneur, and

later compiled words with 25 entrepreneurs who have considered the importance of their community. Author, Alain de Botton, talks of the entrepreneurial spirit, “I took an idea and turned it into a product.” He mentions an important trait of an entrepreneur as someone with an imagination, who can notice the need of others and can design a product or service to respond to said need. When asked where does meaning come from, he replies poetically, “it comes when you feel that you’re somehow improving the lives of others through your work, either by reducing suffering or increasing pleasure.” The Path to Success, written by James Cartwright, acknowledges “there’s no way to really know what kind of journey we’re choosing... we may as well enjoy the one we’re on.” As the cover references, Carl Honoré, an advocate for the slow movement, brings to us the ‘benefits of working less hard,’ an excerpt from his 2004 book, In Praise of Slowness: Challenging the Cult of Speed. His book investigates how adapting a philosophy of slower can result in a more fulfilling and productive life. This text reflects the magazines

‘slow lifestyle’ tag, weighing importance of cultivating community and spending time with family and friends.

Kinfolk encourages living life simply. A common assumption of this may be minimalism, less is more. The

Essentials Issue (16) provides an alternative. Margaret Everton writes The Essential Non-Essentials, asking us to question what the ‘non-negotiables’ are in our lives, what we simply cannot live without. Considering this, our lives can become simpler. “A cultivated selectivity can transform plain objects into relics of our life story. Our personal relationship to items gives them significance, an essence that goes beyond their physical properties… this often illogical but honest act of curation humanizes our existence.”

Issue 17, The Family Issue, provides the thought that family isn’t necessarily just about blood or who you’re

related to, but who you relate with. The photo essay Lean on Me, with words by Annu Subramanian, attributes respect, admiration and trust as characteristics we look for in friends. I agree with the idea that the reason why we first connect with someone is because of something outside of ourselves, yet it’s the connection at a deeper lever which holds the relationship together. This issue also introduces Kinfolk’s second book, The Kinfolk Home: Interiors for Slow Living. It features homes from all over the world that embody the slow living lifestyle. “A home isn’t just a physical structure, but also a structure of our beliefs... We’re able to invige slowness and simplicity into our days without prescribing to a predetermined aesthetic; this is because slow living is less of style and more of a deeply personal mentality.” The book is sectioned into 3 underlying ideas: homes that cultivate community, homes that simplify our lives and homes that allow us to live slowly and with intention. Kinfolk stand by the notion that a residence is not a vessel for style but for living.

I’VE GOT YOUR BACK Negative attitudes are the worst. Being in a workspace filled with people who are negative in any capacity can be very difficult. But I came to the conclusion that “haters gonna hate.” That phrase is thrown around a lot, but it’s true. Often their negativity is less a reflection of you, but more about them; they are trying to make themselves feel better or superior by bringing you down. Words have great power, to bring life and grave harm, so we should be generous with our kindness. Approval, compliments and encouragement are very different things, and can often be lumped together. Approval is the belief that you are doing something right or acceptable. A compliment is an expression of positivity or admiration. Encouragement is an act of giving support, confidence, or hope. One can be expressed without the others. We often think kind words come with an attachment, an expected response or offering, but they cost us nothing. They shouldn’t be a chore or burden, but given generously. Unfortunately, you can’t always rely on people for these things, we are imperfect; we have flaws, we aren’t always kind, generous, loving and supportive. Only God is perfect.

STOMPING GROUND “Can you cycle to work; are you likely to be mugged on a Friday night; if you call an ambulance will it come in time to save your life?” – Andrew Tuck

To some, these aren’t the first things we consider when choosing a city to live in, yet it is something that takes a great deal of thought. Our city options, and the neighbourhoods within, are often dictated by family, or proximity to study and/or work. Yet it’s the lifestyle we chose, what’s essential to us, that greatly influences this too. How a city is laid out can impact our decision in if we desire to reside there. Proximity to facilities including schools, cafes, supermarkets, bars, banks, cinemas, are either great influences or happy surprises. Commuting by either foot or wheel between different neighbourhoods provide new inspiration as you travel. From the end of town with the 6 cafes on one block to the highrise corporate sector, the maze of commuter streets, back alleys and hidden parks sit perfectly interlocked. Yet we don’t always consciously realise how our urban space can affect our creativity. Naturally, and more intimately, our dwellings can inspire our creative explorations; we arrange our houses a specific way, to provoke an emotion or atmosphere. Outside of that, choosing new routes of travel, and taking the time to walk slower and observe the space around provides fresh perspective. You start to see not only a network of roads and city blocks, but the thinkers and creators that turn a grey-scale city into hyper-colour possibilities.
