Outwear Hoop Skirt

Outwear Hoop Skirt 3D CLASS

Foundation Year Project

The main idea of this final project was to find a design that fulfills the building technique of tension and compression.  Based on the history of fashion and the history of hoop skirts, the intention for this project is to prove how the skirt’s components create a product that show the concept of tensegrity through its elements such as its fabric and the whole structure skeleton ,which in fact holds for itself because of the tension and compression between the boning. The design is intended to be a different version of a hoop skirt changing it to an over-garment skirt.
