A Discussion About the Relationship Between the Organic and the Mechanical

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 30, 2022 / Inspired by the symbiotic relationship between the organic and the mechanical, Speculative Ecosystems is a collection visualizing the balance and imbalance in shaping the eco-sphere. The collection ranges from glasses made up of seashells and metal, by blending synthetic materials with natural products, and debuted in NYC recently.

This wonderful collection was designed by Weiran, a New York-based fashion designer who is currently an MFA candidate in the Fashion Design and Society program at Parsons School of Design. Weiran aims to create a new visual language through digital manipulation and textile experiments. Her works have appeared in Harper's BAZAAR UK, Vogue Korea, FashionCrossover London, etc.

"We live in a mechanical environment today, and many people are concerned about the conflicts between human beings and nature," Weiran said, "However, few people realize that the mechanical is finding its balanced way to live with the organic."

It was Weiran's observation of plants that led to her thesis. She was inspired by the roots of the indoor plants that took the shape of the pots. Weiran saw this as an example of co-existence. She also used 3-D modeling to illustrate the patterns of co-existence between pots and plants. This led to the inspiration of the Speculative Ecosystems collection.

This is not Weiran's first time using 3-D modeling for fashion design projects. Her last collection Negative Space demonstrated the often neglected void between the garment and the human body using textile experiments and 3-D technology. Weiran believes every piece of garment could create a unique shape for the wearer.

"It was a fun process when I started the research and experiment for Negative Space," Weiran shared. She browsed her own closet and found out that most people tend to subconsciously buy similar clothes. While the negative space between the human body and clothing is invisible, it contains certain types of patterns that tend to change with the different clothing styles, activities, and postures.
