Abstract

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.
