Its Not Fashion – It’s Architecture – by Allison Engel

The USC School of Architecture students learn the fine points of manufacturing,moncler jacket sale construction,moncler gilet and problem-solving as they craft wearable creations with unusual materials. Look at this project the A jacket made from thumbtacks and caulk. Another created entirely from industrial zippers. Look at this spiky fabric composed of kitchen matches. How about a bumpy fabric of 12,moncler cap244 pencil erasers,moncler jakke sewn one by one in a colorful chevron pattern? These were a few of the solutions that fifth-year USC School of Architecture students devised while creating unique Mao jackets in a studio called “Truth in Making, An Architectural Inquiry.” Fourteen jackets were displayed in an exhibition March 7, and the project attracted off-campus attention, including that of Frances Anderton, host of KCRW’s Design & Architecture program and blog. The assignment from Associate Professor Lee Olvera was clear and brief: Select two materials maximum. Experiment with joinery, creating a skin or “fabric,” testing all potential material properties. After two weeks of speculating about how the materials will perform, select your materials. Once committed, you may not switch. Print out the studio-selected pattern for a Mao jacket, chosen for its conformity and lack of detail. Construct a wearable jacket. You have five weeks, start to finish. “They must think with their hands,” said Olvera, who has given the assignment annually since 2012. “There’s no hiding behind a drawing or a diagram or just waving your arms and saying ‘it’s going to be beautiful.’ If it won’t work, it won’t work. “It’s not Project Runway,” he said. “It’s an exploration of program and function. In architecture, we’re called upon to design the skins of buildings all the time. This project infuses our intuitive skills of artistry and aesthetics with the rigor of analytical and performance-based material experimentation to create innovative working solutions.” Class materials from the hardware store? Past students responded with unlikely materials (orange ear plugs, crayons melted into new shapes, woven rubber bands), and this year’s students continued that tradition, using copper grounding wire, acrylic paint and – appropriately enough – 5,500 round metal pins with Chairman Mao’s face printed on them. (Student Yimeng Wang ordered them from China.) Several came up with time-consuming recipes for turning their raw materials into fabrics. Corey Koczarski started with Rockite, a substance used for patching cracks in concrete. He cast Rockite in silicon molds, experimenting with thicknesses and profile to come up a shape that could be reproduced 4,948 times and linked together. Lillian Lin had no fewer than six steps for turning artist’s gel into the skin of her jacket. She colored the clear gel with fabric paint, spread it on a sheet, scored lines on the surface, dried it, wove the gel into strips, then ironed them flat before shaping her front, back and sleeve pieces. The hours the undergraduates spent in their Watt Hall studio stretched late into the night, early mornings and weekends. Snags developed. Nick Tedesco discovered that it took about 10 hours to hand-sew a square foot of his colored pencil erasers. “Getting the sleeves on was a nightmare,” he said. “You are mentally fatigued working for hours and hours. The erasers rip and tear. “If something looks good on paper and make sense, you can’t be sure it will always work. But you problem-solve. I think a lot of architecture is like that.” Yoonji “Angie” Nam’s unexpected outcome was that the acrylic paint she arranged in circle patterns on Teflon baking sheets took weeks and weeks to dry. When the jackets were displayed March 7, hers appeared as a vest. “I have sleeves but they are not dry,” she explained, brushing white paint from her hair and face. “I think to dry the inside will take one month.” Some surprises were happy ones. Tamar Partamian, who laboriously wove the strands from seven cassette tapes, found that the resulting fabric was much silkier and shinier than expected. “When you see a small individual unit, it’s different from seeing the whole,” she said. Sean Miller, whose thumbtack jacket fell apart days before the exhibition (the caulk wouldn’t hold the smooth metal surface), called the process a struggle. “I think I did learn more being this risky, this extreme and having it fail,” Miller said. “I really pushed myself and learned more than if I picked a safer choice and was more successful. You also have the more difficult and more valuable conversations about your work.” At the exhibition, the designers happily spent hours explaining their projects to onlookers. Several tried on their jackets, proving they could be worn. Calvin Lee, whose lightweight garment of crocheted electronics wire had the most tailoring details (four working pockets with flaps, a pointed collar and buttons), said he was considering wearing his jacket to graduation.

  1. I am typically between a size six and eight in the US so after reading the reviews I ordered a size up. This dress fits very nicely in the waist but is tight in the bust. I’m surprised because I am a 34C which is smaller than what the medium fitting asks for and I had a very hard time getting into this w a bra on.

  2. Seriously – I bought this dress as a throwaway. At 20 something dollars, I had zero expectations. Instead, I received a fairly well-made dress that fits great, has a nice stretch and is a beautiful color. Not only will it NOT be thrown away after the event I ordered it for, it will become a go-to dress for me.

  3. I have this dress in black and, apart from it being too thin and sheer for my liking, and thus requiring a slip underneath, it is very flattering and comfortable. I ordered it in red, and the material appears to be different, thicker, but bunches up around the waist and does nothing for me. So the red I will be returning. $20.00 is a bit steep for this dress – only worth about $9.00-$12.00, I’d say, because the material is so thin. I still plan on ordering other colors, and if they fit as does the black dress, I will keep them.Mens Moncler Jacket

  4. Beautiful dress and good quality for such a great price. I ordered the XL, am 5’4" and 165lbs and the sizing chart said to order XL based on my measurements. The waist fit dead on but the bust was WAY too big. I’m about a C cup and there was so much extra fabric that even alterations wouldn’t be able to fix. Otherwise it was super beautiful and I’m disappointed it didn’t fit the bust.Moncler London

  5. I bought this exact dress in black about a year ago and LOVED it! So much so, that I have been checking back throughout the year to see if they’d ever make it in any colors. Then I saw it – red & blue! THRILLED can’t even describe how I felt when I saw it in these colors.So here’s the good: The red is an actual strawberry true red and not the wine color red you see in the picture. The blue is a beautiful royal blue. Both fit as did the black one I bought last year. I’m 5’7, a size 10, and 162 lbs. and bought these dresses in a Large (The sizing runs small even though the material is extremely soft and stretchy…)Here’s the bad: Both the black dress I bought a year ago, and the red dress I just got, have a nude colored lining. So for your average caucasian skin color, these two dresses are perfect for that sexy look that blends nicely with your skin tone under the lace. The blue however has a bright white lining! Literally powder, hospital, almost glow-in-the-dark white! So when you put it on, it’s beaming from under the lace and looks very unnatural. Alas, the blue is being returned… But VERY happy with the black and red.(If my review was helpful, let me know by clicking "yes" at the end of my review!)moncler usa
