Amilia Hrustic: Plato’s Collection

LOOK AT THIS COLLECTION! This is seriously one of the most amazing things i have ever seen! if i could only get my hands on these for our geometric shoot! they would be perfect… (i have already looked into, they garments are on display in some museum over the other side of the world)

The collection consists of five unique dresses handcrafted from a combination of textiles and paper. The main inspiration for the entire Collection is located in Platonic solids. Plato, the great Greek philosopher, studied what we now call “Platonic solids”. No one knows who first described the shapes of these bodies, perhaps early Pythagoreans, but some, including Euclid, say that it was a close friend of Plato’s Theaetetus

“There are only five Platonic solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron. This project examines the concept of geometrically arranged and structured space in relation to the human body. It is the most appropriate to call it a study of perception and contrast, and study of relation between artificial and organic, amorphous and geometric. ”
