AT THE STUDIO

The ARTful Shirt Design

Often the original detail is enough to create the Designer’s garment.

I found very interesting and inspiring different types of fabric manipulation.

The possibilities for three-dimensional creation are endless.

Starting from the simplest piece of cloth and a threaded needle – surprising techniques will materialized.

The SEWing become ART.

Spesso un dettaglio originale è sufficiente per creare un capo di Design.

Trovo molto interessante provare diversi tipi di manipolazione del tessuto.

Le possibilità per la creazione tridimensionale sono infinite.

Partendo da un semplice pezzo di stoffa e un ago infilato è possibile realizzare tecniche sorprendenti.

Il CUCITO diventa ARTE.

Для Дизайнерского вдохновения достаточно одной оригинальной детали.

Меня увлекают безграничные возможности метода трёхмерной манипуляции ткани.

С помощью простых обрезков, иглы и нити, возможны удивительные эксперименты.

ШИТЬЁ становится ИСКУССТВОМ.

The Designer's Sketch

Fashion Design Sketch by Anna G.

This classic model is decorated with “Pressed Quilting” technique.

The “Quilting” is stitching that fastens some layers of fabric – into design form.

The “Pressed Quilting” is the variation of “Quilting“. It is a pattern, created from the  folded stripes of cloth that appears to weave underneath itself.

Questo classico modello camicia è decorato con la tecnica “Pressed Quilting“.

Quilting“: una serie di cuciture che fissa alcuni strati di tessuto fra di loro, creando allo steso tempo una forma di Design.

 “Pressed Quilting” (variante del “Quilting“): dove le strisce piegate si sovrappongono dando forma ad un intreccio.

Эта классическая модель рубашки украшена методом “Pressed Quilting“.

“рубашки”подразумевает апликацию из нескольких слоёв ткани, соединённых между собой с помощью ручных или машинных швов.

Pressed Quilting” является вариантом, созданным из сложенных полос ткани с эффектом переплетения.

The “Argento” luxury 2-ply soft and silky cotton from Canclini in pretty pastels, would be the perfect choice for this particular Design.

Il tessuto che mi sento di consigliare in questo caso è il morbido e setoso Articolo “Argento” di Canclini. Le tonalità pastello sono deliziose.

Рекомендуемая ткань: изысканный и шелковистый хлопок “Argento” от Canclini в нежных пастельных тонах.

"Argento" extra fine fabric.

Articolo “Argento” is the extra fine cotton.
