In her collection Deep Web Flora Miranda opens the debate on the concept of beauty in a technology-driven fashion industry. The collection can be seen this week at the Haute Couture Show in Paris in Le Grand Rex.
Flora Miranda works on the cutting edge of fashion and art and in creative networks. With recurring references to the digital world, she makes a connection to technological culture and aesthetics – a relatively new art movement. The movement is as elusive as the future possibilities of fashion, which she explores in her work.
IN SEARCH OF NEW TECHNIQUES
Her way of working is that of a fashion designer. She develops seasonal collections around specific themes. Her mission, however, is not to make clothes that are suitable for everyday situations. Instead, she wants to explore the limits of haute couture, which is still based on traditional methods.
An example of this is her Master Collection, in which she researched quantum physics and teleportation and visualized how a body can be constructed from information and dissolved into separate parts to be transferred from a to b. In order to achieve the desired effects in material dynamics and statics, she is fully experimenting with everything that is at her disposal. In her research, a body consists of strips of painted leather combined. In this way, she searches for new techniques – independent of design tradition and history.
