Inclusive design solutions for womenswear through industrial seamless knitting technology

Radvan, Caterina (2015) Inclusive design solutions for womenswear through industrial seamless knitting technology. Fashion Practice: Design, Creative Process and the Fashion Industry.

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Radvan, Caterina
Description:

The aim of this design-led research was to investigate whether, by establishing the aesthetic clothing desires of disabled women, these requirements could be met by inclusively designed seamless knitwear produced by industrial seamless knitting technology. This article sets out the research path taken to produce such an inclusive collection of fashionable womenswear and the results and issues that emerged. This research was undertaken as part of a practice-based PhD.

Since 1993, Radvan's work has been concerned with seamlessness in knitwear and the questioning of conventional clothing shapes and processes through the exploitation of knitting technology. Her PhD research is on the application of the inclusive design principle to advanced knitting technology.
