Tailored 1970s Disco Suit
Design Concept & Execution
For my Tailoring I & II classes, I was ask to design, pattern, and construct a suit from the 20th century. Being a passionate lover of disco music, I decided to tailor a disco suit from the 1970s. Through this year long project I explored traditional tailoring methods based off of the teachings of Roberto Cabrera and Clarence Poulin. Drafting my patterns from Masaaki Kawashima's book Fundamentals of Men's Fashion Design: A Guide to Tailored Clothes, I successfully tailored a suit inspired by the colorful and funky world of disco.
