Fast Forward: Alexandra Verschueren – Medium

April 16, 2013 at 7:12 pm

Obv. I’ve developed quite an obsession with insane geometric/3D clothing.  Alessandra Verschueren graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium in 2009, along with working for Derek Lam and Proenza Schouler.  She followed up by winning the (what seems to be pretty prestigious) Grand Jury Prize at the Festival d’Hyeres in 2010 with this collection.  “Medium” she transforms fabric into paper through 3D architecture and orgimai folding, as well as by using prints that mimic graph paper and pencil sketches.

Particularly fond of the circular cape that looks like a Japanese lantern.  Also the jacket that turns into a pop up book.

Have to say though her more recent works are, though more wearable, unfortunately generic.
