Fashion is an art form that is saturated with fast-made products, and designers that do not play a role in the manufacturing process. Often times there exists a distanced relationship between the designer and the product being made. This format of conceptual design without technical knowledge of the making process prohibits the designer from refining their concept.
Simultaneously, manufacturers and technicians who participate in the making process have their own ideologies that are presented in their craftsmanship. These ideologies are important to the integrity of the design, and quality of the product. When these ideologies are imparted from the makers, and not the designers, the design process has been confined to an abstract realm– designers end their work at the conceptual stage without ever confronting the technical aspects of their designs.
