The Colour-In Dress & The Replacement Dresses; by Berber Soepboer & Michiel Schuurman
“This collection is created especially for an exhibition about ‘de Ploeg’, a famous Dutch textile factory. ‘De Ploeg’ was a great inspiration with their amazing textile prints, fashion designs and their admirable ideology. It resulted in 4 dresses created around 2 concepts, ‘The Colour-In Dress’ and ‘The Replacement Dresses’. In both concepts textile patterns were the essence of the design, these patterns originated in collaborating with graphic designer Michiel Schuurman. He designed some beautiful textile patterns to fit in the concepts and with a touch of ‘de Ploeg’. The concept of the dresses make it possible that the cloth is partly designed by the person who wears it, which hopefully makes them more valuable to the wearer. When clothes are cared for people tend to wear it longer, this makes the dress durable.
The result is a reaction to the rapidly changing fashion, and the massive confection. Your dress will be unique.”
I came across this dress thanks to Computer Arts. Funky.
