DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
An experimentation with shapes, draping and fabrics while keeping in mind the wearability. Body and motion are the two main subjects in the collection. By use of digital printing the drapery - in contrast to it‘s natural way of motion - is frozen in static and transformed into an ornament.
The basic idea of the collection is to interpret the style of ancient greek sculptures and garments and to translate this interpretation into a modern design. This theme expresses the female asthetics of ancient statues and the fundamental influence art has on fashion.
Gray and white revive the ancient stone statues and symbolize female strength, old rose and transparent silk allegorize feminity and fragility. Opposed materials like leather and silk jersey are combined. Womens complexity of character is symbolized by the double layering of the garments and repeats the Trompe l‘œil theme.
