The project is a combination of wearable design and hi-fashion apparel for pregnant women. It is a collection of LeD garments that glows whenever the baby kicks in the mother’s womb. It is to celebrate the magical experience of a life growing inside you. It is an expressive interactive evening wear for the modern day women, to celebrate her motherhood.
The context of the garment is visualized as a red carpet garment for a celebrity who is pregnant. It is a evening garment in which wearable tech is used as one of the materi- als of garment construction.
My Roles and Responsibilities:
- Mood Boarding and Conceptualizing (aesthetics and garment construction) via Trend Forecasting
- Opportunity Mapping via User Research
- Developing Concepts on Fetal Movements (material+garment design+interaction touch points)
- Fully Functional Lab Prototype Development within the limited resources (this could a while as the first time was not successful and the garment needed to be made again with some good learnings)
This was the final design project of the curriculum at National Institute of Design executed in January 2014-March 2014
