Abstract

Ecological and ethical innovations, as well as new methodologies that meet the real needs of consumers or users are very important for fashion become more sustainable. However, the individual is, in the most cases, the main element for that. Generally the consumer throws away his garment not because it has “low quality” or “it is out of fashion” but rather having a failed relationship between him and the product. This proposal work is an idea which plans to reduce the fashion product obsolescence, valuing and maximizing each individual's wardrobe and showing how human factors can be helpful in all process. It will make stronger the effective relationship between consumers and garment because they will be able to construct and deconstruct their clothing, according to their personal taste as well as to their physical type or their genetically determined entity, their somatotype. Inserting modular upgrades in different pieces of clothing it will allow a constant wardrobe renewal, providing the exchange of deteriorated components, colors, materials, shapes and silhouettes. Many parts can disassemble or not, like a puzzle, and they will depend on the occasion in which they are going to be used, or even from the physical type of who will wear them. Therefore, for their achievement, it will be need performing practical tests in a piece of garment to verify the way of sewing it and to study its usability in different physical types.
