Wearable Art Series, 2012

Wearable Art #I, 2012 

The Wearable Art collection reinterprets the Corset Armour series and the Hair Series I into a series of photographs which highlights the multifunctionality of woven fabrics. Woven pieces from both series are taken off the wall and worn on the body. Further blurring the lines between sculpture and weaving, the Wearable Art collection is fashion made of fine art pieces. Wearable Art can be used to showcase the designer's use of materials and artistic statement. Weaving is very inclusive to all kinds of people which is shown through the adaptability of these pieces as they transition from traditional art into wearable art.
