In January I started to better visualize the final project.
It is a dress that is consumed, that dissolves evolving continuously and that will be designed in different stages of “fading”
But how does this head fade away? At what points will the material be thinned? Where and how parts of the fabric will come off?
Surely the use of at least of different types of materials, layered , with very different durations, thicknesses and depth engrave could be an interesting design vision form my study.
Here there’s my pinterest space for ispiration about the project (click on the image)
I have selected the use of three different natural materials:
- natural latex (for the most resistant layer)
- kombucha (for the intermediate layer)
- a thin biosilicone (less resistant layer)
I still no have in my mind the decorative pattern that my dress will have. Certainly it will be thinked for all the phases of fading. I quickly photoshopped an image to suggest clearly what I have in mind.
