Shingo Sato – a couture Japanese designer who does magic in TR (transformation reconstruction)!
He uses this technique in design to transfer old fashioned darts into design lines. He calls it ‘Transformation Reconstruction’ which is done in 3D using calico fabric instead of paper and it gives so much more possibilities to be creative. The basic pattern which is sewn from calico becomes a new one after adding the design lines. His design lines are very wavy and geometrical. Some are even very architectural. His designs are really inspiring! And the technique is so enjoyable!
Here are some photos of his TR of the balloon effect and a short video bellow on youtube.com to follow.
