- SHAPESHIFTERS: Shaping Fashion's Silhouettes
Fashion as a discipline has always been about forms, sartorial visions literally shaping the way we present ourselves to the world. In the hands of today’s most experimental fashion designers, the human silhouette is being radically reshaped and the boundaries between fashion, art, sculpture and architecture, fascinatingly redrawn.
Shapeshifters showcases a range of inspiring and visually-arresting designs from designers all over the world. From bulbous and voluminous to austere and angular, the looks presented will be provocative, exquisite and sumptuous, and will intrigue with their demonstration of the structural potential of clothing.
Working with shapes to provoke our reactions to clothing as artwork, the fashion designers in this book craft their designs based on a concept, sometimes around a narrative, often on a line or a curve.
Displaying astonishingly architectural concepts that are graphically striking and sculptural, this book will appeal to students and designers in fashion and the fine arts, as well as lovers of bold and three-dimensional forms.978-981-245-944-2
