Through her studies at Leeds Arts University, Lottie focused on the reduction and transformation of fabric wastage within the fashion industry. Lottie Edgar’s gender-neutral graduate collection ’s p a t i a l exploration:’ has been created using a mindful design method called zero waste design. Exploring the idea of meditative processes through sketching, Lottie examined applying open space to closed forms.
Transitioning between dimensions she has used these initial 2D forms as inspiration, transferring them into 3D form through cutting and draping fabric onto the body. The use of oversized, organic, adjustable forms acts as a platform to challenge the boundaries between male and female clothing.
