Item description for Dressing Ourselves by Will Alsop, Fabio Destefani, Riccarda Mandrini, Lorenza Pignatti, Paola Nicolin, Johanna Grawunder & Alessandro Mendini...

Conceiving a "self-portrait dress" was the charge given to world-famous architects, designers, musicians, and artists by Alessandro Guerriero, and the results were an exercise in cross-genre creativity that would stun a traditional runway front row. A winner of Italy's highest award for industrial design, the Compasso d'Oro, Guerriero received sketches from 30 of the most innovative minds in a variety of fields, then recruited design students from Milan's Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti to realize the fashions. A touring exhibition of the clothes, on view originally at the Triennale di Milano and moving to New York, London, and Tokyo, displayed the outfits on glass resin sculptures representing the creator in real scale. There are dresses that evoke memories, dresses using reflective materials that change with the light, dresses that explode in waterfalls of multicolored threads, and dresses that dissolve into invisibility. Among the participants were musicians Antony, the Aluminum Group, Jimi Tenor, and Devendra Banhart; architects Johanna Grawunder, Hariri & Hariri, Ettore Sottsass, Peter Wilson, and Makoto Sei Watanabe; and artists William Alsop, Meschac Gaba, Choi Jeong-Hwa, Mimmo Paladino, and Enrica Borghi. Edited by Alessandro Guerriero. Essays by Marco Scotini, Lorenza Pignatti, Fabio Destefani, Paola Nicolin and Riccarda Mandrini. Paperback, 9.5 x 11 in./120 pgs / 164 color.
