Armor and Amour
Armor and Amour is an artistic outcome grounded in French history, namely the interpretation of Joan of Arc, along with the use of modern 3D printing technology. It is a women's apparel silhouette combining elements of the French heroine's life, namely, the juxtaposition of feminine youth against the masculine warrior. Using historical armor as a reference, the hand embellishment mimics military garments of the past, with the decidedly modern utilization of 3D printed elements and a feminine touch. It is a work that explores how the past consistently informs the future and is intended to illustrate the strength, resiliency and duality of the female spirit.
