Colour Blocking - Smarter way to a fashionable clothing look
17
Apr '09
The art of color blocking dates back to the 60s, when it was popularized by the 'Mod Fashion'. Color blocking involves cutting the fabric along the line where the color change is required, and then adding a seam allowance to both the sides.

When the pieces of fabric are sewn together, the final fabric is of the same size and shape as of the original piece, but with two or more complimenting hues.

A perfect assortment of different colors and various shades play an important role in defining the look of the finished outfit. Initially, blocks of square or rectangular pieces of clothing were sewn together.

The 'Mondrian Dress' designed by late designer Yves Saint Laurent during the 60s consisted of flat planes revealing the artistic sensibility of that time.

Later during the passage of time, color blocking has evolved into other geometric shapes and angular patterns in many vibrant colors. It can also be described as a 'Fashion Optical Illusion'.
