TRANSITION: THE TRANS-SHAPING OF CLOTHES
The world is in flux and culture responds with fragments of ideas, sketches of innovative forms and creative utopian concepts. We look forward to ambiguous and rather unfathomable times, tasting moments of promises, and experiencing instants of doubt, knowing that much is wrong in a society witnessing the decline of its institutions. We are living a bipolar moment where we can go from a jubilant personal experience to dismal public aggression, from an absolute high when encountering the outdoors to a depressing down living in the outskirts of gentrified cities; a transversal construction of time and space. As always textiles and clothes react with precise imprecise design directions, blurring borders, obscuring codes, transforming patterns and transfiguring shapes.
Amazing creative forces are unleashed and will help change happen more rapidly than expected. It is as if fashion starts waking up from its long self-induced sleep and, although still sleepwalking, is wandering into newer and more audacious, abstract realms of realization.
