FLATNESS FOLDED - A COLLECTION OF 23 CONTEMPORARY
concept & compilation by Miranda Tsui
Clothes are made for the human body. Flatness Folded explores traditional Chinese clothing and Western tailoring, offering a glimpse of a particular set of visual characteristics and styles of Chinese fashion. ‘Flat and fold’ is a Chinese clothing concept. The 23 innovative garments in this volume transform this traditional concept: the fashion makers – all in Hong Kong – have reinterpreted and delicately adapted this and other ancient Chinese clothes-making ideas and forms into a new expression for modern living.
Flatness Folded is a noteworthy documentation of flat-tailored garment construction, with texts, drawings and photos.
