Bluescreen Viktor & Rolf 2002 catwalk, innovation, screen, haute couture, fashion, company, designer, brand, bright blue garments, reflective textile
Viktor & Rolf enigmatically named their collection "long live the immaterial." It was hard to decipher precisely what that meant since the collection was full of rather heavy materialsówool, pinstripes, fur, velvet, crochet. The designers' talent for earnest experimentalism with traditional elements was funneled into a single device this season; they highlighted all-black outfits with bits of vivid royal blue so that the epaulettes, collars, bib shirt fronts and belts popped out in radiant color.

Fashion at the Edge: Spectacle, Modernity, and Deathliness Caroline Evans 2003 images, fashion history, book, fashion designer
An academic treatise that's beautiful enough to be a coffee table book, Evans's study argues that during the 1990s avant garde fashion was "permeated by images of death, disease and dereliction." Evans consciously focuses her work on one thread of the fashion world: the edgy costumes of designers like Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Hussein Chalayan and Viktor & Rolf. Theoretically, however, she recognizes no boundaries: her treatise incorporates the disparate works of Walter Benjamin, Charles Baudelaire, T.S. Eliot, Karl Marx, Elizabeth Wilson, Simone de Beauvoir and many, many others. The result is a complex and provocative text, one that displays both the substantial intellect and practical curiosity of its author.

Since the advent of cinema, visual art has tended to be perceived as if it were in motion. Artists now create less often in fresco or carved stone and more on film and tape, on the dance stage, or in the ever changing, ever moving medium of clothes. In this remarkable collection, Anne Hollander ranges over art of the twentieth and other centuries with unusual depth of historical insight to explore these rich, diverse visual treasures and the underlying themes that connect them.
Gerrit Rietveld Academie Erik Wong, Anne-Grethe Filtenborg (Gerrit Rietveld Academie) exhibitions, workshop, bachelor, textile, design lab, fashion, master, school, academy, seminars, students
Materials and products are developed in TXT. The notion of a ësemi-finished productí plays an important role, enabling us to mediate between all kinds of end uses: architecture, fashion, interior design and industry. The atmosphere in the department is one in which thinking and doing permanently influence each other. Within the applied framework of the department, there is the opportunity to develop more autonomously oriented work. The world of visual designers is no longer strictly divided between artists and designers. The confusion between these two positions is productive, and you will be challenged to use it.

Diana Eng, in collaboration with Emily Albinski, created this gorgeous dress way back in 2003, which ended up making its way on the cover of ID Magazine.

Pump up the back or the sides to change its silhouette. The designers made no attempt to hide the electronics, rather, they exposed the spaghetti-ball of wires and components as the main aesthetic.

Skin: Surface, Substance, and Design Ellen Lupton 2002 designers, contemporary world, artificial life, media, art, architecture, fashion, furniture, design, book, objects, garmentsm, buildings
Every object has a skin. Thick or thin, smooth or rough, porous or impermeable, the skin is the line between the hidden inside and the outside we experience. Skin: Surface, Substance, and Design presents products, furniture, fashion, architecture, and media that are expanding the limits of what we understand as surface. Reflecting the convergence of natural and artificial life, this provocative and stimulating book shows how enhanced and simulated skins appear everywhere in our contemporary world. Designers today manipulate the relationship between the inside and outside of objects, garments, and buildings, creating skins that both reveal and conceal, skins that have depth and complexity as well as their own behaviors and identities.
