DCC: Design Principles 2D to 3D Relationships

As Textile Designers it’s important to translate relationship between the 2D and 3D. Being aware of how pattern changes when observed on the body or interior fabrics for curtains/sofa. This could take my creative practice to another level.

Illusion > Transformation > Fabric and Form> Pattern and Form

Illusion >3D to 2D and 2D to 3D

Elsa Schiaparelli > Surrealist > Gucci Spring 2016 Ready to Wear

Playing around with the visual. The play between 3D and 2D. Scale can aadd a sense of grandeur and wonder.

Christopher Koziel > Image of 3D turned into 2D wallpaper or fabric.

Digital protection showcasing the interaction between 2D and 3D > Hakanai. An avenue to explore through my concept, specifically looking at movement and fluidity.

Christopher Kane Spring 2014 > Engineering digital design to work well on its intended structure. Experiment with design principles. Constantly ask questions as to how ideas can be innovatively translated within my own creative practice.


Manford Mohr > Digital Art pioneer. How could my own practice transform into other methods of working. Line into form > 2D to 3D. Look at Neil Barrett – Menswear SS16 as reference for my Contextual Research.

Matthew Shilan > How a flat object metamorphosis’s into the 3D.

Look at different ways of how to draw. Flatten it, scan it, draw it. Looking at a surreal outcome.

Fabric and Form

Winifed Aldrich > Showing the effects of different fabrics on form. Look at designers exploring how fabric can take on a life of its own. Iris Van Herpen and Issey Misayke. Miyake could directly influence my own concept, specifically concentrating on individual shapes. Look at Resort 2016.

Vinyl could be used to high effect in creating 3D pattern from a 2D material. What does pattern and form do when amalgamated? Explore through my print samples for 1st Rotation.

Could I print onto fabric and fill spaces with shapes to inform illusion and pattern? Look at the relationship of scale to the object it is destined for. Look toward the importance of scale.
