Goddess of The Future

One of the cool things about being in a new city is all the little unexpected surprises. Avoiding the main touristy streets and trying to get to the main Bebelplatz of Fashion Week, Rocky and I happened to pass a quiet white building with the most beautiful dresses in the window. Collegium Hungarium Berlin, a lovely exhibition space held student work from FHTW Berlin. Many of the pieces were more sculptural than wearable, which is alright by me, because I just love that stuff. Maria Bousseva created these lovely dresses from mirror plates and silk pleats.

Goddess of The Future is the title of the collection, though it was difficult for me to really understand the whole meaning of the aesthetic, I felt a strong connection to it, feeling the tension between beauty, danger and fragility. If only it were possible to really wear these kinds of breast plates.

  3. How beautiful, I’ve been inspired by mirrored clothing ever since Joseph Cornell’s art exhibit was shown in the MOMA in SF. He had items glued or drawn onto mirrors, inside shadow boxes…amazing little man.
    Speaking of SF I miss seeing pictures of you by grace Cathedral, oh well you are having the time of your life now!!

    Well put! It’s really evocative when something so directly addresses how these elements both rely on and compete with each other.

  7. The middle one with structured grey shoulders and oyster pleats looks quit wearable - and you could make a mirrored breast plate if you used smaller pieces of mirror, dilled at the corners so you could attach jump rings, making it more articulated, and hung it from a neck chain.

  8. That would be drilled at the corners - though a dilled mirror could be interesting.
