Good Game, Greyory Blake 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Good Game, Greyory Blake

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis and its corresponding art installation, Lessons from Ziggy, attempts to deconstruct the variables prevalent within several complex systems, analyze their transformations, and propose a methodology for reasserting the soap box within the display pedestal. In this text, there are several key and specific examples of the transformation of various signifiers (i.e. media-bred fear’s transformation into a political tactic of surveillance, contemporary freneticism’s transformation into complacency, and community’s transformation into nationalism as a state weapon). In this essay, all of these concepts are contextualized within the exponential growth of new technologies. That is to say ...

Fashion Design And Material Analysis: Issey Miyake's 132 5 Collection, Krissi Riewe 2018 Iowa State University

Fashion Design And Material Analysis: Issey Miyake's 132 5 Collection, Krissi Riewe

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

A case-study on Issey Miyake's 132 5 collection is used to unpack the relationship between clothing and fashion design within the fashion system. Within this conceptual framework, Miyake's making philosophy arguably positions his work as clothes, not fashion. Instead, Miyake's work offers a critical response to the fashion system by focusing on the connection between designer and wearer through the material object of clothing, thereby calling into question our understandings of the relationship between fashion and clothing.

Basic Bodice Blocks Development For Fitting Large-Breasted Women, Yiya Wang, Charlsie Fowler, Yingying Wu, Carol Mcdonald

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

A growing number of women in the United States have a cup size larger than D. The clothing industry is not addressing these women's needs through present methods used in mass production. Hence, there is an opportunity for the industry to improve the design and fit of mass-produced garments for large-breasted women. This is particularly challenging for large-breasted women who still fall into a Missy-size category in terms of waist and other body measurements. Therefore, this paper proposes a new sizing system and a novel basic bodice block drafting method specifically for Missy-size large-breasted women. It was found that ...
