DRESS ME LIKE A PAPER DOLL
Researching gender roles, participants of a survey (ages 18-60) were asked to draw clothing they believed were most feminine on women, most masculine on men, and the most attractive on both sexes. The answers were then printed on fabric and made into garments that reflected the median of the survey results.
The research behind this project is ongoing...my recent research has added some new meaning, highly recommend Roland Barthes’ work particularly Mythologies, Semiotics, and The Fashion System.
