Detroit Design Festival – Celebration of Architecture + Fashion Show

CHROMA – Bridget Sullivan Designs with RogueHAA – Photographer: Lindee Robinson – Model: Chelsey Korte – Hair/MUA: Noel Fischetti

RogueHAA’s collaboration with Bridget Sullivan, a local fashion and textile designer, produced “Chroma,” a design combining tradition and technology with hand-sewn vintage fabrics and 3D printed pieces.  “Chroma” was the finale piece of Sullivan’s latest collection, which was presented at the Detroit Design Festival’s Eastern Market After Dark.  Sullivan and HAA used impressionist color blending, the fluidity of ballet movement, and pleated fabric manipulations to merge dissimilar materials and techniques.

Sullivan and HAA collaborated from the design’s initial concept through fabrication.  They studied sewing techniques, such as smocking and pleating, which provide both rigidity and flexibility to fabric.  Printed modules emulate the flexibility and repetition of smocking and transition into pleats that receive and manipulate the fabric.

Park[ing] Day 2015

Parking Day Concept Idea

RogueHAA’s installation for Parking Day 2015 had two goals – first, to create a usable public amenity through the reclamation of vehicular real estate, and second to interject a bit of soft, green surfacing into the hard urban landscape. The undulating surface of the installation was created by carving block of foam off-site. Painted plywood provided a clean edge around the installation’s perimeter, and sod provided a surface for passerbys to sit and enjoy. The installation was fabricated off-site and assembled in a parking stall on Broadway in less than 20 minutes.

The team received compliments from adjacent businesses on their creativity, and local news took and interest too.
