The proportion and balance of clothing design means that the visual interest and weight on both sides of the center of equalization are equal. It is an important part of the principle of clothing beauty and plays a decisive role in the effect of clothing design. A set of clothing that is visually balanced , Can give people a beautiful enjoyment; on the other hand, if the balance is not achieved, it will make the wearer and the viewer feel psychological discomfort.
What we call equilibrium is not exactly the same on both sides. It is also divided into two cases: symmetrical balance: also called axisymmetric. The two sides of the axis have exactly the same elements of clothing, fabric, process structure, and color. The symmetrical and balanced design is relatively stable, which is more suitable for women with strong classic style designs. Asymmetric balance: It is a more complicated design form. The components of the clothing, such as the shape, fabric, process structure, and color, on the two sides of the shaft are not exactly the same. They can be one element or two or more elements. In order to keep the elements on both sides of the axis visually balanced, adjustments must be made in the area, direction, and amount of the design elements.
From the perspective of human visual characteristics to study the balance of clothing design, we should pay attention to the following two aspects: Pay attention to the details and set the human eye. If you look from one side to the other, you will feel that the attractiveness of the left and right sides is equal. Attention will swing back and forth like a pendulum, and finally stop at a point in the middle of the poles. If there is an object in the center of this equilibrium, this will allow the eyes to stop here satisfactorily and produce a pleasant and calm moment in the viewer ’s mind. . Clothing styles, whether they are tight-fitting or loose-fitting, need to be set with some details to meet the visual needs of the eyes. The details of clothing mainly refer to craftsmanship, decoration, body structure, etc. The same style, with or without details, has very different results. Pay attention to the balance analysis of color or material. There are two concepts that must be clear: measurement and component. Their overall effect affects the visual balance of the design.
A metric is a quantity that distinguishes the size of a pure form, and a component is a quantity about color and quality elements. Assume that the two sides of the clothes are of the same quality, same color, and the same shape and the same amount of material. Their measurement relationship is balanced, and once the quality and color of some of them are changed, the two lose their visual sense. For example, both sides of a clothes are blue. It ’s colored, but one side uses soft linen and the other side is heavy cotton; or the same material, one side is very dark and the other is light, both situations will break the balance; this is the role of weight. In the asymmetrical design of clothing, we should make full use of quality and color to achieve a balanced relationship between left and right.
In short, both symmetrical and asymmetrical designs can create excellent clothing, but both must balance and coordinate the various components.
