Description

This apparel design collection combines origami techniques and digital printing to create an inspiring and faith-filled line entitled Eternal Perspective. The line was inspired by the designer's faith and the importance of always maintaining an eternal perspective. Flat patterning techniques were used to create origami garments which fold into a vortex, spiral, and diagonal stair steps in the completed garments. Two different digital prints were inspired by eternal ideas represented by images which were modified in Adobe Photoshop. The main print motif used is an altered image of stained glass windows on the San Diego LDS temple. A sunflower print was created as a visual representation of the mathematical Fibonacci sequence and then "engineered" in Adobe Illustrator to fit directly onto the pattern pieces. This engineering ensured that the motif would match up once the darts were sewn.
