Becoming: A design process disrupted
This practice-led study, ‘Becoming’, has developed a multidisciplinary framework for reflecting upon the possibilities of a fashion designer’s process in the contemporary environment. Hypothesising a disruptive reaction to the seemingly linear and ubiquitous fashion design process by exploring how textile design thinking can rework a fashion designer’s process; a disruption in pursuit of chances for creativity.
Through intuitive and reflective practice a guiding process has been shaped for the project through the workings of a positioning in-between fashion and textile design. This has led the project to develop a new sensibility other than that of the expected womenswear project.
The process of disturbance has permeated the project; a continuation of disruption from the becoming’s of design development thinking, through to the narrative of writing.
