Seamless woven fashion is approachable via the Jacquard technology. With the rapid development of weaving technology and materials, an attempt is being made to expand and invent the technical and creative scopes of 3D Seamless Woven Fashion (SWF). The thrusts of the study are to establish complete design principles for advancing creation of SWF. In this study, three technical elements of weaving design have been identified in the course of SWF creation, i.e. elastic yarn, integrated structure, and integrated pattern. Past experiments so far suggested that it is possible to obtain different shrinkages as well as seamless woven textiles with varied richness and novel textures by adjusting the tightness of basic weaves. Moreover, three forms of layered structures, i.e., F (Flat), 3D-MnL (3-dimensional form on mono-layer) and 3D-MtL (3-dimensional appearance between multi-layers) were incorporated on different parts of a garment against specific requirements and/or performance. The construction of 3D shapes of SWF contributes to variety of fashions as well as woven textiles.
