VEST DRESS (YEARBOOK)
Dilemma Works’ 全球Global-Local当地 is a project that uses the easy access to manufacturing in Shenzhen — The World’s Factory — to collaborate with designers internationally to produce a small number of garments from their designs. The process of designing and making each garment is documented and made into a book.
The first edition is the VEST DRESS, designed by HALO Labels in Poznan, with the first sample made by the designer’s mom, with fabric and production by Dilemma Works and Mr. He in Shenzhen.
The fabric is a found digital print on felt: a print shop was using this print to advertise their capabilities, and though not intended to actually be produced, it turned out to work perfectly with the simple, boxy shape of the VEST DRESS. The interior is a vivid blue cotton twill, and the dress is machine washable on reverse.
The first run is limited to 3 pieces. By the inclusion of a 200+ page, 4x6″ pocket sized book with each garment, the VEST DRESS documents its own creation.
