Fashion students create outfits for plus-size women

Fashion students create outfits for plus-size women | Apparel Product Development | Scoop.it

For their Product Development class, Cornell apparel design sophomores Brandon Wen and Laura Zwanziger decided to create a clothing collection designed especially for plus-size women after their research revealed an overlooked market.

But they faced an early barrier: So few clothes are made exclusively for larger women that there’s a scarcity of full-figured mannequins available, and the few that exist resemble crudely scaled-up versions of thinner women of Barbie-like proportions. Undeterred, the students built their own plus-size dress form.

Under the guidance of Susan Ashdown, the Helen G. Canoyer Professor in the Department of Fiber Science & Apparel Design (FSAD) in the College of Human Ecology, they analyzed thousands of 3-D body scans of women to define a prototype body size and shape. The team matched it to a single scan of a pear-shaped, size-24 woman from the FSAD department’s 3-D body scanner and used it to develop a pattern for the shape and contours of their mannequin. Next they used the department’s laser cutter to slice half-inch think pieces of foam and stacked and glued the layers to create their model, a half-scale dress form that allows designers to develop prototype garment patterns that can later be replicated at full scale.

“It’s a wonderful example of using innovative technology to support design work,” said Ashdown. “Instead of just scaling up something designed for a different-sized woman, or even thinking about clothing as something to disguise a body or make a body look different than it is, the students sought to celebrate shape as it really is.”

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, April 27, 2013 12:58 PM

Inspired Helping Cure Cancer
I'm reading Marty Cagan's book Inspired to help create http://www.curecancerstarter.org. Marty is a founding partner of the Silicon Valley Products Group and book is excellent.

Why would a Consumer Products Goods brand marketer who has created more than 10 products need to read a book about inspired product creation? Two reasons including being a marketer today means you never STOP learning and I've never created a TECHNICAL product.

Sure I created FoundObjects.com (now RIP sadly) in 1999, but life was so different THEN than now. Getting Marty's take on the process of creating a product in today's social, mobile world is helping wrap my mind around the task at hand.

This section on creating a Product Values Manifesto is something I will do for Cure Cancer Starter. This link actually goes to examples.
