Introduction | 展覽介紹

Since its advent in the late 19th century, the bra has evolved into a highly complex and sophisticated garment which serves multiple functions including supporting the breasts and creating the fashionable shape of the time. However, this complex bra design process – particularly the cup design variations - has not been fully understood despite its long history. Rapid developments in both smart materials and bra production technology have transformed a 2 dimensional patternmaking process into a 3 dimension process, and this made the 2 dimensional bra patternmaking skills become obsolete. Thus, Dr Kristina Shin, the Intimate Apparel Discipline leader at the Institute of Textiles and Clothing, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, has been developed her own innovative bra patternmaking method, which enables students with novice patternmaking skill sets to create various bra designs from scratch with commercial fit quality. This exhibition entitled ‘Cross Your Heart’ showcases a vintage inspired intimate apparel collection created by using the designer’s innovative bra patternmaking method. 


自19世紀末面世以來,胸圍的發展步向高度複雜並且極致精細;除了支撐胸部的功能,同時亦塑造出各個年代的時尚胸形。儘管推出至今已有百餘年歷史,但大眾對胸圍設計(尤其是胸杯製作的變化) 的認識並不完全。再者智能物料及生產工藝的迅速發展,胸圍由平面紙樣製作演變成立體量裁,令平面紙樣的繪畫技術漸被淘汰。


因此,香港理工大學紡織及製衣學系內衣專業Dr Kristina Shin自創嶄新的平面紙樣繪畫法;使初學者能夠以平面紙樣的方法繪製各款胸圍,同時令製成品達到合身的要求。


是次展覽以‘Cross Your Heart’為題,展示一系列由經典內衣款式啟發的作品,並運用Dr Kristina Shin創新的平面紙樣技巧製作。
