THE BAROQUE DRESS – Fabian Partoll
As a starting point, I analyzed the characteristics of the baroque dress. Through its billowing curvature and ornamental settings, the dress itself hides and reveals simultaneously. It along with the figure within create a new autonomous object bereft of the characteristics of the either object alone. With this in mind, you can see a woman in a baroque dress as an autonomous object and the dress itself as an autonomous object. Together they emphasize and deny each others relationships. As a result the stitching itself becomes the driver for the new object.
With exact this distinction between the object inside and the object outside, this relation creates an third “unseen” object or the a space in-between, a meta- object..
As a result three objects are working together in the this project:
– Inside Object (woman)
– Outside Object (dress)
– meta Object (space in between- void space)
Through means of exploring these relationship, this project seeks to look into the possibilities of the built environment and how fashion and stitching can become new opportunities for space.
