Eli King – Final Project

For my 99-361 Independent Project I created a clothing collection for a world where gender isn’t represented through what we wear. This was done through simplifying each garment down to its most essential form. In addition to the purposeful lack of ornamentation, the clothing has minimal human interaction. Each piece was designed in the 3D modeling software Rhino, then sent to be cut by a laser cutter. The only time the wool was touched by man was during the sewing process. The collection was inspired by the works of Vetements and Gosha Rubchinskiy. I designed and constructed 8 pieces in total, all but two out of black boiled Italian wool.
