Zero-waste garments by Jungeun Lee

Jungeun Lee has been experimenting and researching unconventional methods of garment construction, resulting in these zero-waste garments.

Her process eliminates the need for sewing, cutting or weaving. She wraps synthetic fibers around a desired form, and then uses a heating process that transforms the fiber into a three dimensional molded garment. This technique renders both expected and unexpected silhouettes.

Her zero-waste garments are a significant contribution to the fashion industry. Although her materials are petroleum-based, her process is noteworthy nonetheless. By designing in free form without the vast amounts of waste that traditional methods entail, she is paving the way for future eco-friendly praxes.
