The Oxford shirt redesign began with an in depth look at the human body..The first form of shelter that our bodies engage with on a daily basis is clothing. The assignment was to take the iconic white oxford shirt and re interpret its design and how it interacts with the body. The oxford shirt is such an iconic piece of clothing. For my redesign I began to study what makes it so recognizable. I arrived at the collar and cuffs. The idea for the redesign was to take all the material that was only connecting important pieces together and to give them a more direct function. The next challenge was discovering what method to use in order to do this. Peeling material in order to give it function is how I began to inform the new design of the shirt. The final product combined the original white material and an added black mesh in order to give the idea of negative space. This was to make the cuts, folds, and peels more intentional.
