THE LABOUR OF LOVE: CLOTHES THAT WORK AS HARD AS WE DO
presented by Philip Fimmano
A garment can be so spectacular that we don’t even have to act or talk; it speaks for itself, the job is done. Clothes are destined to help us be and express ourselves. They are invented to do the work and guide and protect people. Garment and textile design is therefore the science of human experiences and their repercussions on the weight of a fabric, the tactility of a yarn, the nobility of a fibre. This notion is beginning to infiltrate the world of fashion design and is producing a young generation of post-pragmatic designers that produce – as the formidable Suzy Menkes calls them – clothes that work as hard as we do. Therefore the designing of clothes will become the latest mantra. Garments that are gathered in their own right.
The working garment will be infused with the labour of love.
