Fabricscape
Innovative pattern-cutting by Elena Ryleeva

FABRICSCAPE is innovative pattern-cutting approach devised by Elena Ryleeva that is destined to initiate a new conscious direction in designing of clothing and accessories.
FABRICSCAPE project explores the application of mathematics, geometry (in cutting process), draping and sewing techniques to recreate the fabric surface/surfaces into three-dimensional structured sculptural object with exciting potentiality to becoming a unique design.
