Textiles Student Jungeun Lee Develops Method of Design Without Stitching
After failing to find a new way of making something, she Jungeun Lee developed the 'Wrapped Garment' process which uses "synthetic fiber and a heating process to create three-dimensional, sculptural designs that require no cutting, weaving, or sewing" according to fastcodesign.com. The process Jungeun Lee has come up with is quite simple: you simply wrap your materials around a mannequin and then apply heat to put it all together.
The results of this sewing without sewing process created by Jungeun Lee are seamless pieces that scream contemporary chic.
