The practical significance of fabric remanufacturing technology for fashion designers

Fabric re-creation, also known as the secondary design of creative fabrics or fabrics, has become an important means of innovation for fashion designers. This paper attempts to analyze the fabric re-creation by introducing the characteristics of fabric re-engineering, and enumerates the application of fabric re-engineering in some of the major domestic apparel design competitions in 2010, and analyzes its practical significance for fashion designers. The fabric re-creation, also known as the secondary design of the fabric, is a fashion designer who uses the various techniques and techniques to re-process the original single fabric in order to enhance the artistic effect of the garment. There are many ways to realize the reconstruction of apparel fabrics, which are generally divided into the following three aspects.

 1. Classification according to its processing method and final artistic effect   Based on the re-engineered processing method and the final artistic effect, the realization method of the fabric art re-engineering is divided into the secondary printing and dyeing of the fabric (ie: some plane, pattern design and processing on the surface of the fabric) ), the redesign of the fabric structure (ie: according to the different process means and the resulting effect, the re-engineering of the fabric structure can be divided into the overall reconstruction of the structure – deformation design and partial reconstruction of the structure – destructive design), apparel fabrics Add decorative design and multi-component design of apparel fabrics. 2, according to its effect  According to the effect of fabric re-engineering, it can be divided into the texture re-engineering of clothing materials (ie: the texture effect of clothing), hand-dyed printing, artistic dyeing (ie: using modern printing and dyeing technology on various textile fabrics and garments, and tying, sewing, and wrapping Combining various techniques such as dyeing, painting, painting, extension, brushing, carving, pressing, etc., to create an artistic practice that is different from the aesthetic features of hand-printing and dyeing, such as plane, three-dimensional or monochrome and multi-color blending new graphics.) 3 According to the creative ideas, according to the creative ideas of fabric re-creation, it is divided into: 1. From the plane to the three-dimensional, 2, from the figurative to the abstract, 3, from the simple to the combination (ie: the combination of various fabrics), 4, from the manual Going to modern times, 5, from order to “disorder” (ie: the designer is not only passively engaged in operations, but the process of production into creative activities, showing their own unique language in disorder), 6, from Single to multiple (the use of more materials), 7, from the monorail to the multi-track (the transformation of fabric remanufacturing means increased), 8, from the traditional to the modern. In summary, the fabric can be re-constructed into additive design, subtractive design, three-dimensional design, pattern printing and dyeing design and comprehensive design.

 1. Develop the ideas of fashion designers and constantly explore new forms of artistic expression   Designers have been designing in limited materials for many years, and their design ideas are bound by the material of the fabric, which does not reflect the personality of the design. Clothing materials have broken through the original functions of warmth, shame, and decoration, and then point to functionalization and intelligence, pursuing tactile style, visual style and functional design. The popularity and unity of mass production of apparel fabrics has become a problem for fashion designers; nanotechnology, aerospace technology, bioengineering, and cloning technologies have broken through the originality of fabrics and strengthened fabrics. Use features. Improve the design concept of modern designers. Fabric manufacturers continue to improve the quality of fabrics, improve and develop the fabric’s comfort, breathability, waterproof, anti-wrinkle, anti-fouling, anti-static, anti-ultraviolet and intelligent performance, fabric performance is constantly innovating in the visual Functionally, designers are looking for a breakthrough; the newly developed fabric fashion cycle is cyclically short with seasonal and climate changes, which is too restrictive for designers to use fabrics; students, small and medium-sized enterprises are affected by geography, capital, etc. Going abroad to research and develop or purchase new fabrics requires a lot of overhead and is not practical and so on, so that more fashion designers are willing to make secondary designs with limited fabrics.


 The “new materials” and “new effects” produced by fabric re-engineering are conducive to fashion designers to develop their imagination, inspire thinking, and sprout new ideas and new ideas in the design process. In the fabric reconstruction, the fabric can be cut, decomposed and reorganized. Various fabrics have different strength, flexibility, gloss, warmth, thickness, permeability, and different texture and performance. Different materials will have a processing method corresponding to their performance: the same material will have a variety of texture changes after using different processing methods. Interlaced fabrics of different colors, such as warp and weft, after partial cutting and spinning processes. It will have more than two kinds of color changes. When the velvet fabric changes in the direction of the reverse direction, there will be a change of light and dark. The silk and yarn fabrics have good transparency, and the cascading shows an obscured, subtle and rich color. Fur and leather have beautiful natural texture and pattern, which is a good design material. The other type of jewelry materials, generally appear in the form of points, lines, such as all kinds of lace, wool, rope, color rope, beads, sequins, shell ornaments, stone ornaments, zippers, feathers, buttons, etc., these materials are generally used for The embellishment and decorative base fabric can make the base fabric unrecognizable and have a new look. Fabric re-engineering is inspiring for fashion designers to develop their thinking and imagination. The process of fabric design sprouted the designer’s new ideas, publicized the design personality of the garment, enriched the visual connotation of the garment, carried the classics, advertised the innovation, and created a unique scene for the aesthetic field of apparel. It can be seen that the rich materials help the designer’s imagination and stimulate the desire to create. At the same time, the continuous development of new materials can provide designers with an inexhaustible creative energy.  For textile and apparel companies, the fabric itself has many limitations, such as color, texture and so on. Collecting popular samples through secondary fabrics will not greatly improve the efficiency with the fashion derailment fork, but also meet the needs of consumers. These creative fabrics have also inspired designers from all walks of life to apply fabric re-engineering and therefore have strong development potential.
