Conditions of Wear investigates opportunities of improv theatre techniques as a generative tool for fashion designers in the early stages of design. This method creates a platform for rapid ideation, iteration and working with Zero-Waste Pattern Cutting to play with risk and shift conventional systems of fashion design practices. Improv theatre techniques create the conditions to embody the design space through collaborative action, as a generative tool which provides structure through constraints in the creative process for designers.
