The 3D design technology is brewing change in the world of fashion. In the 3D Creative Design international competition held from May 18th to August 31th, 2020, the four winners from Hanyang University showed their leading adaptation to such change in the fashion design paradigm, realizing their designs using the latest 3D technology.
For the two rounds of the 3D Creative Design competition, the contestants had to submit two designs: the first was designed to suit the age of coronavirus, and the second was designed to use sustainable materials and to prepare for the post-coronavirus era. The evaluation was divided into student and public categories, with a total of 10 awards given to the best designs. 455 contestants from 35 different countries joined the contest.
Grand Prize: Kim Ma-ro
Kim Ma-ro (Department of Clothing and Textiles, 4th year) won the Grand Prize in the student category of the competition. He says he first got to know about the competition in the class Virtual Fashion Content Development, finding interest in 3D designs. Given that their first assignment in the contest was to design suitable clothing for the era of coronavirus, Kim says he made his first piece after being inspired by the medic protestors demonstrating against the police.
For the second assignment, Kim designed his piece with semi-transparent textile, implicating that people will be more cautious to protect themselves in the post-coronavirus era. When asked about how he thinks he won the grand prize, Kim says he focused a lot on “whether the design can be actualized” and “whether it follows the current trend.” Kim especially thanked the professor for introducing the workings of the CLO Virtual Fashion Program and the hosts of the contest for continuing with the competition despite the pandemic.
Design Award: Won Hyun-A
Won Hyun-A (M.S in Department of Clothing and Textiles) said her interest in the contest also came from the same class as Kim. Having been interested in textiles during her undergraduate years, Won entered the contest with her first design which resembled the protective gears that medics wore.
Her second design expressed her belief that during the post-corona era, awareness for protecting the environment would increase. Therefore, she used the clothing waste collection, such as leather made from pineapple instead of animal skin. Won said she also focused a lot on whether the design was achievable, and whether the clothes would sell in the real market. “I also would like to thank the program developers who allowed the 3D design to take a further step in the world of fashion," said Won.
KTTA President of Association Award: Han Min-jae
Han Min-jae's (D.S in Department of Clothing and Textiles) first interest in fashion came from her father who introduced her to the field and the Department of Clothing & Textiles. Her final piece for the contest was inspired by her desire to popularize the hanbok, the traditional Korean dress. Han used traditional textile, patterns, and knitting designs, but she presented them in a contemporary way with modern alterations such as combining the outfit with a mask made from the hanbok material. The overall pattern for her design was inspired by Holly McQuillan’s zero waste fashion, and the removable patterns allowed different ways of styling as to be suitable for daily routines. "I thought my design was well suited with the final topic of the contest of building ‘sustainable material’ because I view traditions as being sustainable, having withstood centuries," explained Han.
Popularity Award: Chen Tian-yi
Chen Tian-yi (M.S in Department of Clothing & Textiles, ’18), an exchange student from China, said he started to study fashion for the first time after he came to Hanyang University. His first design was also inspired from the protective gears that medics wore. Chen said he wanted to make the protective gears fashionable, so that even ordinary citizens could wear it every day. The second design was inspired by the textiles he found in clothing donation boxes, using a denim and check-patterned design to connote that clothing can be recycled and be fashionable at the same time. Receiving the Popularity Award, for which only two entries of the entire contest were selected, Chen thanked everyone who had voted for his design and congratulated his colleagues on winning the honorable awards.
