Material and Dress
The topic aims at exploring the relationship between matter and final form, whether matter is a fabric or any other material of found object that can be transformed into a garment. How does material define and guide the form, function and aesthetics of dress? The members of the Society are invited either to present unpublished research on this topic, or to discuss about their design work regarding the ways in which material inspires, influences and shapes different types of garments. We hope that the proposed papers will address all aspects of dress, both in historical and theoretical contexts as well as in contemporary creation.
