Surrealism with Floating Origami Rose: A Cocktail Ensemble
Surrealism with Floating Origami Rose: A Cocktail Ensemble Diane Sparks and Tyler Klene, Colorado State University The focus in this submission is the Surrealist landscape textile design. Emphasis was achieved through digitally manipulating color vibrancy and contrast in the artwork used for the silk textile. Garment structures were held at a minimum level of complexity to emphasize the textile design. Traditional draping techniques were used to create garment patterns, and couture techniques were used to assemble and finish garment structures. This design follows the precedent of a relationship between fashion and Surrealism established in the 1930â€™s by Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador DalÃ. It is different, in that the textile design process was done using digital technology. The contribution to the literature provided by this submission, is a unique textile design and garment structure that visually demonstrate the potential for dress designing to be a manifestation of art.
