Introducing the CLAPE (name to be revised!)

So Prototype work has begun on a garment that can be interactive in some way with its environment.

First things first some shapes and concepts need to be explored. Here is a cross between a cape and a cloak hence the name ‘clape’ (not sure I like that yet!)

This was a 5 minute challenge to myself to see if I could produce a concept piece with newsprint, pins and a tailors dummy.

The colours in the background are some thermochromic tests…
