in combinazioni nuove che siano utili, forse.
Carolina Reis studia grafica e fashion design in Québec e Conceptual Design presso la Design Academy Eindhoven. Come tesi del suo master ecco il progetto „Wear Out“ nella quale reinterpreta e stravolge l’essenza del detto „L’abito non fa il monaco“.
This project is about wearables that take shape once the wearer have used them. What if the wearer could become whoever he is without having to choose a certain representation in his outfit? Is it possible to approach fashion design without imposing a certain model to follow?
The outcome from these premises is a movement promoting diversity and diversity achieved through movement. Since movement is as individual as our fingerprints, a design that takes into account motion becomes singular to each person. The design effortlessly adapts to the body’s movement. The mechanism applied on the fabric breaks when there is pressure and adjusts to the wearer. By using movement as a catalyzer of change in the object, the garment takes its final form once each person has used it. By encouraging individual diversity, I hope to promote tolerance towards difference.
