Mathematics and fashion aren’t necessarily strange bedfellows. The craft of pattern making and transforming 2D flats into three-dimenionsal garments does require an understanding of basic arithmetics. LISA SHAHNO‘s latest collection “SQUARING THE SQUARE” takes mathematical principles and uses them as pure, unadulterated inspiration. The entire collection is created from rectangular pieces of fabric in various lengths and widths sewn together into sculptural forms. The result is bold and dramatic architectural fashions that reshape silhouettes with faceted surfaces and sharp angles.
Personally my favorite are the shoes that are created from a rectangular piece of PVC, overturned in a certain order and fixed in accordance with the foot shape. Find more images on LISA SHAHNO’s website.
