Taking the concept of “seamlessness” as her starting point, Yeseung Lee offers an innovative practice-based investigation into the meaning of the handmade in the age of technological revolution and globalized production and consumption. Combining firsthand experience of making seamless garments with references from psychoanalysis, anthropology, and cultural studies, Lee reveals the ways that a garment can reach to our deeply superficial sense of being, and how her seamless garments can represent the ambiguity of a modern subject in a perpetual process of becoming. Richly illustrated and firmly rooted in the actual work of creation, this daringly innovative book breaks new ground for fashion research.
 
Review Quotes
Susanne Kuchler, University College London
“A richly contextualized and beautifully narrated journey into the cognition of making that binds cloth and skin, garment and person and replaces distinction by modalities of transition. . . . A sharp and incisive critique of the fashion system that will enable a new approach to be developed to the analysis of fashion.”
