My thesis, The Digital Cage, was about taking the topic of internet overstimulation and discussing it using fashion/art wear. For more details on this project check out: https://www.jasongagnondesigns.com/graduate-thesis

This garment was made using digitally printed polyester canvas representing the eye tracking data of 12 college age participants. The fabric was then constructed into a completely zero waste garment, which was fun and challenging!

The coat has neoprene sleeves and a lapped center front zipper. The pattern used up four yards of fabric in the final construction and was created with zero waste design methods. This garment was also the base of the final culminated collection look. The coat is shown on the jumpsuit developed for collection of garments.

The second to last image represents all thesis garments layered on top to create the “Finale” look. This represents the different tabs on an internet browser and how they can stack up on us. The final image is of the entire collection line for my thesis.

    Wow! Congratulations and a great collection! While I’m not sure I understand the eye-tracking data representation, I do think it’s a very inventive way to execute your theme. The textile itself if very colourful, graphic, and expressive and I like it very much. The clothes themselves seem comfy, easy to wear, and stylish so kudos on that but I don’t feel “over”-stimulated by them ;) . I’m super-impressed with your zero-waste idea and creations, they layer prettily as well. Good luck with your fashion, you are well on your way to a great career ! <3

    A couple of pointers for next time: buttons and loops (rather than hooks and eyes) will give you the same effect but are more wearable, match your textile design better, and won’t catch on the layers. Also, you could have used slightly more complicated facing construction methods to have the back capes hang better because their weight is pulling the fronts of your garments up in a somewhat unflattering shape. Looking at the design of your pantsuit <3, I think that it’s pretty close to (or should/could be) zero-waste construction as well, you should mention that as a positive point in your project.
