Interior Designers often look to fashion and the different fashion week events around the world to get a sense for how styles are constantly evolving and pushing the envelope. Oftentimes, fashion styles are translated into the design world. Recently, Hong Kong fashion week veteran, Winnie Witt, created a collection in where fashion design was created in a way that highlights many of the same design principles that interior designers frequently use.
Winnie Witt’s Trinity Collection, as seen in Aria Stone Gallery’s #STONEISART exhibit, closely examines three pillars of Winnie Witt’s foundation of style: geometry, body, and space. The Trinity collection is composed of unexpected shapes and silhouettes from a unique and innovative style of pattern cutting.
Witt is a master in tailoring, which can be seen in her focus bold, architectural designs that offer a full, rounded, asymmetrical silhouette. Every angle of her outfit offers a new outlook to her conceptual designs.
Using thing, gossamer-like material to showcase bold, heavy objects, Witt tests the limits of space and physics. Witt incorporated tights and jagged remnants of marble and quartzite from Aria Stone Gallery into her installation to experiment with different types of shape and weight. When the two contrasting elements of sheer tights and natural stone combine together to create a third sense of space.
In applying the concept to the design, the garment will appear flat on the surface but its design is to revolve around the body, when you look at it from the side it is a cylinder. The pattern has to revolve around so the body is circular in shape and it gives the garment space around the object.
