My thesis project, “The sky is the mirror,” is a contemporary reinterpretation of astrology based on three textile techniques: jacquard weaving, rope braiding, and hand weaving. I have created wearable textiles with zero-waste construction and individualization through astrological symbolism.

From the perspective of a rectangle, the fabric piece is given a sort of folkloristic dimension with its varying possibilities to dress a body. Rope, digital jacquard, and hand weaving turn into graphic, repetitive, and playfully wearable garments. Material and fit evolve in parallel in an interesting interplay between material development, form, and pattern.
