Transcript of Fashion Designer in Geometry

Fashion Designing
Geometry Types of Geometry used in Fashion:
Geometry is used in Fashion with:
Ratios and Proportions
And More! Using Ratios & Scale Factor:
Your pattern will be 'x' times smaller than you want your actual garment to be
-EX: From your pattern to a size 0 item the scale factor is 1:4 Pattern Garment
-Size 0 1 : 4 By: Grant Braam,
Rachel Lennon,
& Ellie Hafez Scale Factor is Used:
-To determine the pattern to sizing chart
-To determine how much fabric and materials will be needed Seams Reflection Circles Midpoints Symmetry Slope Slopes & Seams:
The seams on either side of the garment should have the same slope

EX: The seams are parallel, both having a slope of undefined Patterns & Decorations On Our Clothing... PLAID
the parallel lines have the same slope
the perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals and have a product of -1
the squares and rectangles created are geometric shapes Plaid uses parallel and perpendicular lines to create rectangles and squares PINSTRIPES A pinstripe pattern uses threaded parallel lines, which have the same slope TESSELLATIONS A tessellation is a repeated pattern without gaps or overlaps
-Tessellations are used to create a repeating pattern on clothing REFLECTION
When the pattern is reflected over the line of symmetry GEOMETRIC SHAPES Many designers use basic shapes to create patterns
Circles and their radii are used when a seam needs to be created at an exact measurement from one spot Circles & Seams: Now You're The Designer! The Objective: On the sheet of paper given to you, create your own article of clothing! *Hint: Remember all the techniques professional designers use. The most creative design wins!!
