Graphic fashion

7th September 2010

Looking at the body through the eyes of technology and techno craft, graphic designer turned fashion designer Patricia Osbahr pursues the idea of the ‘ideal’ body in contemporary society.

Looking at the relationship between our desire for avatars in the digital world and human augmentation through plastic surgery in order to manipulate the female silhouette, Osbahr has used advanced 3D modeling to offer up a digital silhouette and form.

Working with leathers and digital cutting techniques she has created architectural faux real forms inspired by manipulation of the body, whilst creating an entirely new aesthetic borne out of the relationship between the digital world and the craft world.

Her work sits in this new digital craft space that is defining not only a new aesthetic, but also respect for the artisan and raw digital code as a material with which to work with.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
