La arquitectura de Norman Foster - Norman Foster´s architecture

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Three garments that try to reflect the work of Norman Foster. In the three garments I used transparent fabrics which superpose and remind of Foster´s glass buildings. I constructed each garment from the shape of the “rhombus”, like Norman Foster does.

INSPIRATION

Last year I got to know Norman Foster´s work. I started doing sketches trying to capture his style and materialize it into clothes (fabrics, shapes, materials..). My attention was caught by superposing of transparent materials, the use of the “rhombus” on Foster´s work and the curvilinear shape of his buildings.

MATERIALS USED

The transparent materials that I used are organza and a natural silk gauze. I also used knit fabric as a base for the overskirt and the seamless. For the decorative part I recycled a white oilcloth cushion and I cut out brass shavings.
