For the progress of the fashion industry, we need to seek high quality and differentiation of the wears and one of the way is to develop design motif. The purpose of this study is to make creative designs by selecting inspiring paintings from the abstract painting in the first half of the 20th century, analyzing their artistic beauty and introducing their motif. The methodology of the study is composed of document study and manufacture. To design fashion that I researched papers regarding abstract painting and surveyed the concept, back ground, orgin, and development of abstract paintings. Based on this study, I studied design cases which took motif from abstract painting. The result of this study is as follows. The seek of pure from which was prevalent in every area of Art Vivant in the first half of the 20th century, was present in Cubism, Futurism, Fauvisme, Purism, Neo-plasticism, Suprematism, Constructivism, and Expressionism. Each school has its abstract idea in various ways and it gave inspiration to creative fashion design. The color and simple forms of the early 20th abstract paintings was appropriate for functional dressing and modern art. The design concept is casual feminity in luxurious mood. Motif of abstract paintings was expressed with design factors such as line, shape, and pattern and feminie sense was expressed with creativity and current trend. The motif was taken from the painting of Hemri Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, Robert Delaunay, Piet Mondrian, and Paul Klee who made a great contribution to abstract painting history in the early 20th century. I analyzed their color and shape and retranslated them into the motif of my works. As a result, the vivid color of abstract paintings was appropriate for modern sensibility and the shape of abstract paintings was appropriate for creating simplicity and functionality of modern art. As fashion is evolved to reflect the current culture, I also suggest the potential of design as high value product in the 21st century by combining functionality and art into my work.
