Modular design has been explored by textile and apparel designers. However, most designers who explored modular textile and apparel designs focused on two-dimensional products or more boxy silhouettes that did not contour closely to the body since most of their works were made from modular shapes of one size. This research exploration focused on creating modules that can be used to create fitted garments combined with digitally printed fabric for dramatic and changeable surface design. To investigate, the researchers created one modular shape based on a triangle shape with inspiration from the aquatic life. By gradually increasing the size of the modular shapes to fit the three measurements of a dress-form, those modules could be interlocked together through the slots on the sides to create a textile and fitted top on lenticular fabric sheets. A print was developed in Adobe Illustrator and digitally printed on silk charmeuse to create the skirt of the design.
