“our appreciation of the apparent aesthetic simplicity of minimalism is accompanied today by an increasing interest in the development of new fabrics and combinations of materials. in this way fashion is catching up with industrial design, which has been dedicated to reducing the weight and volume of objects for many years. a well known and long standing collaboration between makiko minagawa and issey miyake aims to incorporate complex synthetic materials, like polyester and nylon, into high fashion. the german designer jil sander uses fabrics from the aeronautical industry in her designs, thus demonstrating her trust in technology as much as in aesthetics as a means of expression. philippe stark has created a garment for wolford using no more than 7 ounces of stretch polyamide, where merges the sweater with a tubular, seamless on-piece dress, and is at the forefront of clothing development.” (from a book i scanned @ the ucla arts library but not sure which one)
