In the times of visual overkill we may ask our selves what do we actually see? How is this for a blind person, doesn't he or she see even more?
Disabling one of the senses reinforces the other.
This hypersensitivity filters the essence of our perception and stimulates our ability to interpret.
The concept for Collection Arnhem 2014 was based on our fascination with a statement of a blind born boy: “It’s beautiful, at least I think so, and I believe what I want to believe.”
In the design process all pure visual aspects, such as color chart, are disabled. Instead, the tactile characters and processing of the materials were emphasized. The personality of the fabric determines the image of the color.
Collectie Arnhem is an annual project of the third year fashion students from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Arnhem.
