Issey Miyake introduced his A-POC, or "A Piece of Cloth," apparel concept in 1997. Designed to highlight the two dimensional quality of cloth and to minimize waste, A-POC garments were produced in machine made rolls of knit fabric pre-sewn or fused with finished patterns. The user cut the pattern from the roll to create a ready-made, customized garment. This A-POC dress is made of a similar tubular knit sewn with 3-dimensional pads arranged in a tribal pattern.
