Monstrosities - Stegosaurus
Artist: Sarah Ivancic
Sarah Ivancic's Monstrosities is inspired by a comment made in jest that a fashion collection be based upon dinosaurs. The concept took hold, presenting Ivancic with a motivating design challenge. The costumes enabled an exploration of textile techniques, such as surface design to create dinosaur inspired prints and textures. The conceptual challenge for Ivancic was to develop characters that represent ideas around feminine strength and power, through costume and clothing. What emerges is the flirtatious, lady dinosaur both terrifying and tantalizing.
