Complete with incomplete

   Complete with incomplete is a project which offers a new way of consuming and producing fashion in the future. Three major parts are combined together in order to complete this project.

 

·      A set of weaving techniques, which allow fashion products to be produced without sewing any seams.

 

·      An ideation for a future new system for consuming fashion, which is constructed with a modular system for garment patterns.

 

 

   The non-sewing garment offers a possibility of a modular system for fashion. With altering seam allowance and creating cutting slots on patterns, the garments are designed to be able to complete construction by weaving into each other.

 

  For this project, a new system and a new solution for current overconsumption issues for fashion could be realized in the near future. Consumers nowadays are constantly buying more and waste more, yet if what they own is alterable and could be changed into a new product within a system, less could be wasted.

 

  For example, if you want a new style for a top, just buy new collars and sleeves and replace with the weaving system. With this modular / weaving system, we would be able to achieve the ultimate ideation of customization. What’s more, providing a new solution for the major issue for this industry: fashion waste.
