Theme of the 4th competition dp studio :


« Appearance & Misalignment »

Through this competition, we are offering you this year to reinvent one of our pants models, giving free rein to your imagination in order to reinterpret it according to your desires. Thus, all the techniques are to be used according to your wishes: model making (recreating shapes, volumes) - style (making it another garment) - textiles (paintings, graffiti, fabrics) - accessories (embroideries, braids, haberdasheries).

These are the pleated loose-fitting pants, 301 (visual of the technical drawing below). The volume of these pants is easy to work with, so you can be as creative as you can be! With this pant shape, you have many possibilities in the choice of raw materials: fluid, soft, dense or heavy fabrics.

Essential indication: NO creative limits!
