dc.description.abstractThis practice-based research investigates the design of jackets for the purpose of urban cycling. The objective of this research is to promote a discussion on the specific functional requirements of a jacket for the increasing number of professional women who are choosing to cycle to their place of work. The research has been motivated by a personal dissatisfaction with the availability of appropriate clothing for female urban professionals, particularly tailored jackets with specific features to wear, not only on the road but also in the office. A critical framework of practice and fit testing for functionality underpins the research and leads to the use of the technology of laser cutting combined with an experimental approach to tailoring and construction. These approaches ultimately changed the design direction that developed into the final selection of woollen jackets created for temporal urban settings.en_NZ
