Abstract

A study was carried out on the past and present techniques, processes, and procedures that enable the creation of seamless fashion for innovative ends. Unlike knitting and moulding, which are by far the most developed methods of producing seamless clothing, there are a number of other techniques that can also be used to create seamless fashion, which deserve equal attention. This paper offers a chronological review of the development of some of these techniques towards the creation of seamless fashion.
