about this item

What does making mean to us as human beings? What is meaning and function of the seam? Can material making result in knowledge making? The texts, images and designs in this book are a maker’s emotional and intellectual response to a concept of ‘seamlessness’ in practice and theory. As practice-led fashion research, Seamlessness: Making and (Un)Knowing in Fashion Practice opens a new genre of fashion writing: investigating the meaning of the handmade in the age of technical revolution, globalized production and consumption from a maker-author’s point of view.
 
Seamlessness combines a first-hand experience of making seamless garments with psychological, anthropological and sociological analysis. Lee reveals the depth at which the garment can reach to our core sense of being, and how a seamless garment can represent the ambiguity of a modern subject perpetually in a state of process. This book is a truly innovative exploration of a theme, exploring the boundaries between practice and theory, making and writing, sense and language, seams and seamlessness.
