Samenvatting

QUOTE 1: “There are a lot of misconceptions around albinos. Some African communities belief that albinos are harbingers of disaster, while others mistakenly think albinos are mentally retarded and discourage their parents from taking them to school. In the worst scenario, there are even some communities whose people believe that albino body parts have magical powers. All these believes have forced thousands of Africa’s albinos into hiding, fearful of lo¬sing their lives and limbs to unscrupulous dealers who can make up to $75,000 selling a complete dismembered set.” QUOTE 2: “[M]y collection is inspired on the albinos’ uncommon beauty, vulnerability and need of protection. My main goal as designer is presenting a new way or ‘armor’ to protect these vulnerable beings by manipulating materials with a new approach in order to create new textures/fibers and give old textures/fi¬bers new lives. By using scarification, the scar feeling in fabrics and as finishing for seams, and iridescent aspects of insects, I want to use an uncommon and irreverent notion of ‘beauty’. My work wants to speak up for the albinos and the funda¬mental concern of all social groups, which are being victim for being different and go against the imposition of a standardized form upon the body as a symbol of ‘acceptance’ in their society.” TITEL PAPER: Onderzoek naar de restrictie in mode : zijn we wel zo vrij in ons kleedgedrag als we denken? [o.a. sociologische verklaring; referentiekaders; Rococo-periode; Surrealisme]
