FashionCamp Milano 2011 Part Two: Art For Art's Sake Aestheticism

Throughout the two-day fashion BarCamp, I had visited quite a few exciting and inspiring exhibitions and workshops among which I reckon ART-Sharing's paper clothing workshop was one of the most worth mentioning art and design workshops. ART-Sharing is a company which aims to foster a close link between business and art. I called this workshop art for art's sake corner. The fashion students were encouraged to use paper to tailor clothes. Though the paper outfits can't be worn in everyday life, it is the belief of art for art's sake aestheticism and the spirit of creativity that count.

The paper clothes were custom made according to an individual's unique body shape.

This looked so much like a runway showpiece.
