In experimenting with and researching unconventional ways of creating garments, Royal College of Art student Jungeun Lee discovered a way to make garments without cutting, sewing or weaving.
Lee discovered that by wrapping synthetic fibre around a desired form or chosen objects and applying a heating process, the fibre transforms itself into a three-dimensional moulded garment. The result is both expected and unexpected sculptural silhouettes.
The entire garment can be made using just a unitary fibre and heat. This technique eliminates the process of making fabric from fibre, or creating a garment from fabric using a cutting pattern and sewing process. The result is a fuss-free item with no leftovers or wasting of materials.
Lee is currently the one-half of Studio Koya.
