FABRIC project

Stéphanie Baechler

FABRIC Project – these two-dimensional textile surfaces and three-dimensional textile objects have arisen from an intensive engagement with colours and surface qualities. The central theme in development of the design was the arrangement of the folds. Inspired perhaps by curtains, plastic bags, fabrics left lying on the floor or even the folds of rumpled bedclothes, the designer started by creating three-dimensional paper and textile installations. As a second step, she made two-dimensional fabric prints and then finally – in a kind of synthesis of the 2D and 3D effects – textile objects which she hopes will be understood as a new form of perception and as a challenge to fashion designers.
