Dressmaking with Hewlett-Packard (HP)

SINGAPORE – Our Raffles Singapore Fashion Designers participated in a recent collaboration with Hewlett-Packard (HP). They created an array of dresses and the idea behind their designs was to create a capsule collection that best reflected Asian Elements that could be seen in each of the dresses.

The students experimented with the Tyvek material from HP, and adopted an unconventional approach of dressmaking techniques so as to portray the best possibilities of the material provided by HP.

Here are some snapshots of our students’ creations!
Raffles Singapore looks forward to exploring future collaborative projects with HP in all aspects of our design disciplinary.

This look is inspired by the ideal of a box within a box, we wanted it to have the 3D effect. It is designed to fit in a box. For the skirt, we used a total of 6 meters and hand-pleated it into an accordion pleat.

Inspired by the flower print, we pleated the whole dress to create volumes to resemble flower petals. We added horsehair to the hem for more flounce and use loops as the opening to anticipate fitting for different size.
