Architecture & Fashion



This week was such a snoozefest around the blog. There is an explanation: been attending as many events as possible during the Architecture Days (ZA) that ended yesterday.

On Wednesday evening I have been invited to be part of the jury for this fashion show organised during ZA2011. I somehow managed to snap a few photos while writing down a few ideas for each look. The photo form the top left at the beginning of this post was the winner look: the dress was very carefully constructed, and the matching accessories were exquisite. See what can be done using sprayed cardboard/paperboard? Amazing! 

It was really fun and exciting to see how these projects turned out. There was a total of nineteen looks and an equal number of teams, each team made up of five or six students. Almost all of the outfits were made using materials you can buy at the stationery shop, sometimes in combination with textiles on which said materials were applied. Considering that they are in their freshman year makes me admire their work even more.

I would like to thank the organizers who invited me to be part of this fun & wonderful experience. I sure hope this show will be on again in a couple of years, during the next edition of ZA.

  4. I'm really not that into architecture being so literal in fashion. These pieces, although I do not deny their creativity, belong in a museum or an art gallery but never on the human body. It just seems to me like if fashion is not wearable that its missing its main purpose.

  5. @Eszter: I get your point & thank you for your input sweetie! However, these are just some school projects, never meant for use in real life. They are just exploring the possibilities of making 'clothes' from unconventional materials. I think they should be admired for this fact only.
