Squares

A 3-piece collection developed in my second year at the University of the Arts Utrecht. We were assigned a muze to inspire us with ideas for a concept and/or collection around. Rem Koolhaas was my person. After researching his works I came to the conclusion that his design languages revolves around the estrangement of geometrical chapes. By intercepting and changing perspectives of his buildings or surroundings a interesting conversation got developed, a thing which intrigued me. The idea evolved to use shapes which are widely recognized, such as squares, circles or triangles and to deform them bring new perspectives. I started interpreting this idea through material experiments. I started cutting squares out of stiff materials and started twirling them. This eventually led me to sculpt these shapes around mannequins to 'build' the dresses, like a architects builds his models.
