My concept is based around modular fashion. The idea is to be able to change the panel at the back to add your own artwork. The goal is is avoid throwing out the t-shirt by changing the panel when your tastes change.
Adding mixed media artwork to the design lets you get personally involved and increases the emotional longevity of the garment.
My prototype is constructed from an old t-shirt and fabric from an op-shop. My joining techniques for the interlocking section were stud buttons and eyelets.
Design Development, from sketches to final outcome.
