Inner Fashion questions the codes, rules and production technic of fashion. A dress can be produced from scratch in one hour only. Two layers of fabric are dressed into a body size balloon: an inner layer, XXS, highly strechable and an outer layer, XXL. In a few points the 2 layers are glued. The glue connects both layer together where it is applied. The balloon is deflated; the tension of the inner fabric wrinkle, bend and fold the skin of the garment in an unique and unexpected way.
Product & Context by Laura Lynn Jansen
Process by Thomas Vailly
The human body is seen as a fluid, inflatable and mobile structure in which the tension of fabric remplace muscles. Each piece of cloth are made of 2 layers: an inner layer, XXS, highly strechable and an outer layer, XL and none strechable. Both layer are dressed on a zeppelin shaped balloon representing the human body. As the balloon fills up with air, the fabric of the inner layer stretches out and both fabric are touching each other.
Where normally embroidery uses needle and thread, fast fashion production line uses glue. The glue connects both layer together where ever it is applied. The balloon is deflated. The tension of the inner fabric wrinkle, bend and fold the skin of the garment in an unique and unexpected way. On a few points, inner and outer skins are glued together creating a space between the body and the surounding.

Laura Lynn Jansen is a young Dutch designer who graduated from the wellknown Design Academy Eindhoven at the Public Space department. She works on different disciplines and likes to combine and mix those together. Her creativity can be found in a combination of the different languages of each of the disciplines which vary from fashion to architecture and music to product design. Laura Lynn has been working on ideas about the space between your body and beyond and the tension between total control and the sharing of territories. In every creative mind, a series of decisions has to be made when a problem needs to be solved. Using her sensuous approach, she tries to add or introduce something (change, movement, space for thought), challenging our traditional perceptions of design
Thomas Vailly’s interest in the transformation of substances developed whilst studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Technology of Compiègne. This concern was further developed whilst studying on the Masters programme at the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work explores themes of consumption and commodification – perverting the material perfection of slick industrial design.
