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 first-hand experience of making seamless garments with reference to psychoanalysis, anthropology and cultural studies, Lee reveals the ways that a garment can reach to our inner sense of being, and how 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.

Yeseung Lee is a researcher and practicing designer. She is currently a visiting academic for research in fashion and textiles at the Royal College of Art, 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.' – Susanne Küchler, University College London
