Vera de Pont just launched a stitch-free clothing collection that can be assembled without a sewing machine. While many designers experiment with unique designs and unexpected materials, these pieces are usually assembled in the same manner. This collection deviates from conventional design by allowing consumers to put the garment together themselves.
De Pont is a recent graduate of the 'Design Academy Eindhoven' and her collection was created while she was studying there. The collection itself consists of five coats, which are either woven or silkscreen-printed. Each coats is made from a single piece of fabric, meaning it can be delivered to the wearer as a compact roll. The stitch-free design means that the garment can be assembled by the consumer without a sewing machine. The user-friendly pieces help the consumer contribute to the design process and play a role in the production of their clothing.
The collection demonstrates a unique way to bridge the gap between the fashion industry and maker culture.
