Laser cutting technology is integrated in most of our creations. Here’s how it’s done.
At SOMA design I try to find the beauty in the everyday items that surround us; an old tapestry, a flower pattern from Flora Danica or perhaps an old Japanese porcelain teapot. If you care to look, there’s beauty all around us…
Drawing and testing
When the inspiration has been nursed and has stopped moving around in my mind, I draw a layout of a laser cut pattern. Then the pattern is tested on different fabrics until I find the perfect match.
Let there be styles
Subsequently, I draw the styles which I see fit for that particular collection. My inspiration stems from old magazines, classic fashion items, old fashion books or even from a woman I see crossing the street.
Time to construct and digitalize the patterns
With the fundamentals sorted, I now begin to combine my laser cut patterns with my styles. When the two have partnered to my satisfaction, I digitalize the patterns.
The birth of a bold classic
Time to carefully place the patterns on the collection pieces and prepare them for laser-cutting. A new outfit is born.
