EVELIN KAGO A STUDENT FROM THE SWEDISH SCHOOL OF TEXTILES. AS A DESIGNER SHE IS EXPLORING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEXTILE LAYERS WITH A FOCUS ON HOW BODY MOVEMENTS CAN EFFECT AND CREATE UNEXPECTED SURFACE EXPRESSIONS IN GARMENTS. 

WITH THIS COLLECTION SHE IS EXPLORING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEXTILE LAYERS BY FOCUSING ON COLOR PERCEPTION, PATTERNS AND THEIR VISUAL MERGING EFFECT IN ORDER TO CREATE CONSTANTLY CHANGING SURFACES. BY USING ANIMATION AND OPTICAL ILLUSIONS IN THE GARMENTS THAT CAN VISUALLY “REACT” AND CREATE STRONG COMMUNICATION WITH THE AUDIENCE BY CONTINUOUSLY SHOWING THE WEARER’S AND VIEWER’S INTERACTION THAT IS “DISPLAYED” VISUALLY. IT INVITES THE WEARER TO MATERIALISE THEIR MOVEMENTS AND THE VIEWER TO INTERACT WITH IT. 

SHE WANT TO EXPAND THE THINKING OF PATTERNS FROM BEING ONE SURFACE DECORATION INTO MULTI-LAYERED SURFACES. SHE WORKED WITH THE PATTERN DESIGNS THROUGH ITS “CONSTRUCTION”.
