Mannerism Fashion - Doyi Park
My inspiration is to approach as a Mannerism Artist. It is part of European art that appeared after the Italian High Renaissance. It represents classic artwork, modified in individual perspectives. My characteristic or concept - in terms of Mannerism - is to demonstrate, exaggerate, and transform an intentional disharmony. Shirt, a classic staple, exemplifies formality and wearability, regardless of one's gender and age. Asa result, I established and explored shirts as my core theme and inspiration.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
I focused my project in creating garments that are both artistic and wearable. Through each exploration of shirts, I found unique silhouettes and implemented them into the construction and prints of the garments. Furthermore, I created various collages to help myself understand and formulate new garment structures within Mannerism art.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Wool,cotton and silk are materials that are used in most of my collection. Since some materials were not robust to support the structured silhouette in my project, I used numerous fusible materials to make the fabric stiff and strong.

First, I researched about what is the mannerism art and then I try to apply the definition to fashion. I though that the shirt can be considered as the symbolic meaning of the mannerism fashion. So I did several exploration using the classic shirts to create my collection.
Since I have several structured garments, I had to search for stiff and strong fabrics to create such silhouettes. I encountered several challenges in perfectly creating a three-dimensional shape patters. As a result, I did several paper works to properly formulate desired silhouettes.
