Playtime Download is a five look knitwear collection for womenswear. Designed, programmed and created using Shima Seiki digital knitting software and machinery, these garments were constructed using cut and sew methods as well as whole garment knit technology. Working with the concept of escapism, I have explored nostalgia and digital immersion. Escapism is the tendency to seek distraction, the avoidance of reality or routine, achieved through absorbing the mind in imaginative activity. Through looking into childlike imagination, I explored awkwardly fun and oversized forms, as well as different drawing styles and how these progress at each stage of childhood development. Stimulating colours and quirky doodles encouraged exploration of ‘another world’, filled with classically observed content that occurs in children’s drawings, such as family members, houses and flowers. The digital escape was encompassed through use of Google Tilt Brush, where I drew this content in virtual reality. I then took this imagery and drew directly into the Shima Seiki digital knitting software, creating drop shadow effects to translate the shift between two and three-dimensionality achieved in the virtual headset. I hope for this collection to draw the viewer into their own escape, even an imaginary world. Escapism is the creative expression of reality within another world.
