My thesis is inspired by my fascination with hang gliding and how it effortlessly and elegantly pierces through the sky. In these moments, nature comes alive as the wind envelops you in its most generous embrace. Guided by my curiosity about pattern geometry, mobility, and performance textiles, this project is a study of my "tech-lingerie" aesthetic through digital pattern-making, 3D prototyping, and counterintuitive material combinations.
