The need for flexible display is arising where extensive researches have been carried out investigating flexible display using polymer optical fibers. Materials had to be varied and rich in their mechanical properties and truly sculptural. This paper presents different kinds of polymer optical fiber (POF) panel fabrication and modification methods, these techniques are feasible to be combined and applied in producing a piece of colorful "art-work" as a garment piece. In designing a display garment, it is important to integrate computing technologies with fashion making to express the garment piece aesthetically.
