Modu_gram by Lianna Sheppard

Lianna Sheppard, graduated from her MA in Fashion at KIngston University, last September, exhibiting at both Vauxhall Fashion Scout and at Tent London.
Like she told us, Lianna is a triangle obsessive and an imaginative fashion designer whose work sits in the hybrid space across the three-dimensional design landscape.

Inspired by mathematical models and fractional forms, her Masters project ‘Modu_gram’ is a collection or series of 3D wearable structures. Initially created through simple folds and origami's generating form on varying scales each structure is then named separately, Octa, Tetra, Edra and Poly. See more;

The pieces themselves transform through the use of several different means; light, movement, structure and colour, all shown using performance also with the use of built in magnets allowing pieces to be worn at different positions on the body the form generation is exclusive to the user or wearer in the moment.

"Modu_gram is as much about Fashion process as it is about product, I am looking in depth at the generative series, at how we assemble, create, perform and transform as an infinite and continuous series in itself."
