Details of translucent and opaque interactive panels  and image underneath. 

Panels were woven as a tight gauze over the illustrated layer, cut around the edges, then coated with fabric stiffener. The ribbons were sewed onto after to replicate the belt of a Jinboari robe 


Process

"Designing Traditions" is a project in collaboration with the RISD Museum and I was inspired by the traditional Jinbaori (surcoat of a high-ranking samurai in order to protect from elements) and its architectural shapes such as the circular arm holes and the collar panels.
