Description

"Secessionist Reformkleid: Striped Day Dress that Converts to a Tunic" Anne Bissonnette, Ph.D., University of Alberta, Canada Keywords: History, Daywear, Multiuse, Multisize Inspired by the bold geometric styles of the Viennese Secession art movement, this dress/tunic addresses demands in "The Human Ecology Fashion Design Manifesto": it is conceived to be worn in different ways; it is multisize; it can be worn by different age groups and body types; and care is given that comfort is as important as aesthetics by assuring a wide walking stride and variability of cinching below the bust. I aimed for elegant daywear that reflects our casual mindsets and our need to reduce consumption. By selecting more serviceable garments worn for a longer time span, we may live more sustainable lives. Reference: Bissonnette, A., Chartrand, J., Furler, M., Sayegh, Y., & Siferd, P.
