THIS WORK AIMS TO EXPLORE THE LINKING OF BODYPARTS AND THE INTERNAL INTERACTION OF MATERIAL, BODY AND MOTION IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH A NEW RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BODY AND DRESS.

THE COMMON SYSTEM IN CONSTRUCTION OF DRESS IS BASED ON AN ABSENT BODY, CONSEQUENTLY DIVIDING IT INTO PREDETERMINED PIECES, WHERE THE PARTS OF THE BODY ARE BEING ISOLATED FROM EACHOTHER. WITH THE INTENTION OF CHALLENGING THOSE FIXED STRUCTURES, THE WORK PROPOSES A CHANGE OF ORDER IN DRESS THROUGH A CHANGE OF PRACTICE WHEN INVESTIGATING THE LINKING POSSIBILITIES WITHIN THE BODY.

BASED ON THE ELASTICITY OF THE MOVING BODY AND THE HAPTIC PERCEPTION, IN TERMS OF CONSTRUCTING DIRECTLY ON THE OWN BODY, THE WORK PRESENTS A SERIES OF EXAMPLES WHICH CONNECTS AND COMPOSE DRESS FROM NEW POSITIONS OF THE BODY.

THIS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A CONTRIBUTION TO WHAT IS PERCEIVED AS DRESS AND BRIDGING THE GAP IN THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN BODY AND DRESS.
