Abstract

This dress was an experiment with virtual reality (VR) sketching technology. The purpose was to explore the limits of this technology as well as test if the sketches could be translated into fabric. I chose to theme my sketches around Edgar Allen Poe’s Masque of the Red Death, as well as historical influences- primarily Elizabethan collars, and Victorian bodice style lines. This is where the name for this dress was derived, Red Death. 

Keywords: virtual reality, draping, 3D sketching, technology
