skeletons & rodarte

i was in work this morning and as a group we had to create a mood board for our opinion on 'style'. anyway my manager gave us loads of magazines to rip and tear up for images and i came across the rodarte 08/09 collections in elle i think it was. i thought it would be good to relate my uni project 'laundry' too as i'm looking at mummification for now. the idea of wrapping and stitching up wounds, and using these techiques with garments. the idea came from some textile samples i did with coffee, bleach and dyes. i'll get some images up of them soon for you to see.

these collections really inspire me for this project, as they look wrapped & ripped. the colour palette for this project is appropriate also.

skeleton inspired.

the posts below are the collections i looked into for this project.
