POLYTHEISM OF BEAUTY
International workshop DA, PEARL ACADEMY India
Garment always speaks about the cultural and social meaning that they have, which, designed as a language, talks about our personalities, attitudes, and ways of being.
Indeed, to design a garment, we need to begin from the body-garment system, the relationship and the open dialogue that is naturally (and culturally) established between them. The designer, therefore, does not only deal with clothing but also with the people who inhabit it.
To do this, clothing design must be open to all the types and varieties of bodies that exist, abolishing the classic stereotype: slimness-height-youth, with which fashion has always expressed itself, putting into the limelight what Umberto Eco called the polytheism of beauty.
Fashion is not only a funny and imaginative work: fashion is a language, complex and simple as we wear it: fashion can comunicate the difference and speak about your unique identity.
The body is a canvas, we can wear it like we want: we can change the world with this language, because first of all is a social and a cultural language.
The final projects present volumes that adapt to the different sizes of the bodies, clothes that can help breathe, others regulating temperatures. Garments are human functional prothesis.
