Beverly Semmes

This is another Fashion and Art link for the NC group to consider, and perhaps a starting point for the HN1 creatives as we start to consider the "Mysterious Dress".

Beverly Semmes is an international artist/sculptor who uses garments and clothing as subject in her work. She creates exaggerated forms and explores the power of clothing and its ability to influence and define who we think we are and how we present ourselves. I particularly love the distorted bodices and elongated arms, and the sheer luxury and power of colour and fabric.

Ideas and words like elongation, exaggeration and distortion are fabulous concepts to consider in the design process and can transform something simple into a stunning and original creation...something to think it!
