This collection of work is a study of texture and fabric manipulation applied to pieces of wearable art. Eleven dresses were made, each embodying a different fiber art technique, and made from the same pattern. The purpose of this design thesis collection is the study of manipulating fabrics to create texture and visual interest in wearable art, and the effect each fabric has on one dress pattern. In order to link the pieces in this study and make the work translate as a cohesive and thoughtful collection, the designer took inspiration from Oklahoma.-Findings and conclusions. The end result of this thesis was a gallery exhibition held at the Department of Design, Housing & Merchandising Gallery in the Human Environmental Sciences building at Oklahoma State University. Further development of fabric manipulations will continue to be experimented with for future studies.
