First project of my fashion design BA course. The aim of this project is all about three-dimensional shape on the body - being creative and produce something extraordinary.
Specifically, i draw inspiration from Andre Kertesz and Hans Ballmer who sculpture and photography abstraction human figures. The key words i wrote down are distortion, enlargement and toughness.
I also be inspired by a vintage garment from the Benenden archive housed at Kingston. And i selected this oversize and functional men's coat.
While i was draping on the mannequin, i keep vertical line on my mind.
To outline the change from my first tolie to the second one, i clearly placed the pictures on the two sides.
One of my method to keep refreshing and getting more inspiration - is to collage the research and recreate new images.
In summary, this corruption project is really helpful for me to push boundaries and be experimental and exploitative on different shapes.
