KNITTED DRESS “HARTE SCHLINGEN“

3rd semester – knit design

The inspiration for the group work „Hard loops“ was the pilgrimage church „Notre Dame du Haute“ designed by the architect Le Corbusier.

The dress is made of two different yarns knitted on the reverse side. Through a temporarily abstraction of one yarn during the stitch formation the dress became a semi-transparency in recurring intervals. The asymmetrical sleeves are based on the shape of the church.

The centre of the back part is crocheted by a technique called “Gabeltechnik“, which is fragile but strong at the same time.
