movement is one of the key design considerations when designing clothing, but industrial designer jae kim took a mechanical approach with this skirt concept. the project is a small experiment kim created using a simple grey skirt. the skirt is loose on top and gradually flows into a series of triangular pieces on the bottom. the triangles created a geometric form to the skirt that is then tied to a mechanical controller. the wearer adjusts the control located at the hip and the skirt reacts by moving the geometric grid, creating new rigid forms from this textile. the project hints at machine embedded fashion that can change forms at the touch of a button.
