COUTURE COLLECTION, SPRING/SUMMER 2013

Our human capacities allow us to view things as they are on the surface, but one must wonder what exists underneath. A fossil that encapsulates a hidden natural treasure. Pieris reveals her wings wide open flaunting her beauty. Her body, light as tulle, lies on an adorned bed ready to be scanned in. The process commences and the result? A striking discovery, the interworking and multiple layers of construction of this creature is clearly visible to the naked eye. Straight down to the core that can be read like an open book, allows us to dig deeper into the soul. Suddenly we begin to see a mélange of juxtapositions between dark and light. The contrast of strength and fragility are evident; a vigorous constructed foundation with a delicately sheltered surface. A significant contradiction between two extremes; the good and the vicious, an allegorical perception of Limbo.
