Clothing fabric is one of the three elements of clothing. Fabrics can not only interpret the style and characteristics of clothing, but also directly influence the performance of clothing color and shape. We briefly introduce the modeling characteristics of different material fabrics and their application in clothing design as follows.
Soft fabrics are generally lighter and thinner, have good drape, smooth shape lines, and natural stretch of clothing contours. It mainly includes knitted fabrics and silk fabrics with scattered fabric structures and soft linen fabrics. Soft knitted fabrics often use linear and concise shapes to reflect the graceful curves of the human body in clothing design; silk, linen and other fabrics are more loose and have pleated shapes, expressing the flow of fabric lines.
The cool fabric has clear lines and a sense of volume, which can form a plump clothing outline. Commonly used are cotton, polyester-cotton, corduroy, linen, and various medium-thick wool and chemical fiber fabrics. This type of fabric can be used in designs that highlight the accuracy of clothing modeling, such as the design of suits and suits.
Glossy fabrics have a smooth surface and can reflect bright light. Such fabrics include fabrics with satin textures. It is most often used in evening dresses or stage costumes to produce a gorgeous and dazzling strong visual effect.
Heavy duty fabric
The heavy-duty fabrics are thick and scratchy, which can produce a stable styling effect, including all kinds of thick woolen cloth and quilted fabrics. The fabric has a sense of physical expansion, and should not be pleated and piled up too much. The A-shaped and H-shaped shapes are the most appropriate in the design.
The transparent fabric is light, thin and transparent, with an elegant and mysterious artistic effect. Including cotton, silk, chemical fiber fabrics, etc., such as georgette, satin silk, chemical fiber lace, etc. In order to express the transparency of the fabric, the commonly used lines are natural and plump, with varied H-shaped and round-table-shaped designs.
