// WSA Level 2 Fashion and Knitwear Design

2014FADCompPoster

Design a ‘mini-collection’ of two outfits, menswear or womenswear, which respond to the challenge:

What can multisensory fashion be? How can it enhance the experience of the wearer?

Using our five senses, we investigate, communicate and interact with the world around us. Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch – together they create our perceptual experience; they shape how we encounter and respond to our surroundings and each other.

Create a sensation. Engage the wearer’s senses – generate opportunities for interaction between the garment and the person wearing it. Heighten sensory awareness – shape how the wearer experiences their environment.

Think with multiple senses. Search for perceptual correlations. Blur the boundaries – what is visual? Auditory? Olfactory? Gustatory? Tactile? Explore situations where the senses synthesise.

You could consider:
• Connections between wearer, garment and environment
• Possibilities for interactivity – high- or low-tech
• The integrity of the materials you use – maximise their sensory possibilities
• The power of colour and light
• Crafting tactile shapes and surfaces
• Interpreting sound in fashion
• Visualising the experience of smell and taste

Seek inspiration in the rhythm of a pattern; the shape of a sound; the taste of a texture; the colour of a scent…
