Chemical innovation is a fashion revolution. The technological progress has been so rapid that we can no longer be sure that 'natural' materials are not in fact artificial imitations; fraud. Fashion intensifies and underlines feminine desirability, through the interplay between covered and exposed skin, often represented through bizarre aggressive manners. This work investigates the esthetic possibilities in unconventional materials in fashion design. Garments are shaped to highlight versatile, alternative materials, and to challenge the surreal, 'ideal' female figure.
