I love fashion for lots of reasons, not the lease of which is because it was often relegated to “women’s fripperies”. I know that the fashion industry is highly problematic but there are artistic elements that are still valid and worthwhile. It’s complex at the very least.
What I love about really good fashion (incl. much haute couture) are the fabrics, angles and silhouettes. In any case, the things I look at the most in this image the fabrics - it looks like it is all made out of the same fabric, but in fact would be multiple fabrics with different widths of pattern (and maybe different structural elements), and I look at the angles created by the extreme arch of the back of the model, and the space created at her waist to upper thigh.
this is mostly just for my own interest. I love textile art.
The dimensions of fashion and paper clash in this perspective-warping series, with Eiko providing the minimalist papercut backdrops for Maiken’s models to traverse, though the question of origin remains: did these travelers always exist on the 2D plane or has their depth and volume invaded the lower dimension?
David Roemer captures the beautiful Jacquelyn Jablonski in this retro inspired January 2013 cover for Vogue Mexico. Jablonski wears a garment from Fendi’s Spring/Summer 2013, which is actually one of my favourite Fendi collections to date.
