A knitted garment seems to provide more support and seamless body integration through it’s construction. 

Knitted compression/performance fabrics:

  • Thermophysiological wear comfort (fibres, fabrics, garment, garment systems)
  • Skin sensory wear comfort (fibres, fabrics)
  • Ergonomic wear comfort (garment construction and fit, garment systems, assemblies and their interaction)
  • Psychological wear comfort (design, branding, perception)

sampling in a knitted fabric led to panel changes. by subtracting side seams reveres a flow/harmony while illustrating sectional body movements (shoulder bones’ connection to the chest). contrasting these sections in both neoprene and lycra is the next step.

combining a weave stitch, turk stitch and slip stitch in different panels could bring about a multi layered and textural garment - an easier alternative to the three dimensional knit.

fully fashion knitting

garments designed are fully knitted, this brings about a challenge of knittings pattern pieces that can be constructed seamlessly. More so, when adding cable knit panels along arm hole seams etc.
