Stéphanie Baechler

I don't know what to make of it....it's v Freudenthal/Verhagen looking. Interesting, yes. Practical, no. Apparel, no. Not really sure what it is but some of the images are lovely. Interesting yet somehow I can't apply a function to it. Yet I'm still posting. I love the fucking with 2D/3D thing. Theres just 'something' here, even if I can't define it.

It’s amazing what can be done with some simple cloth, a photo camera, nails and a wall. Young stylist from Switzerland Stéphanie Baechler shows us just that with her project “Furnishing on Bodies”.

In the beginning the fabrics hanging from the wall were experimental installations. Then Stéphanie looked at them from another angle and took one, two, dozens of shots. She cut out the pictures taken, put them together in a graphic composition and printed it on textile.

The result is a series of concept dresses and kaleidoscopic capes of complex design, created however without the superfluous use of rolls and rolls of cloth. All Stéphanie needed was a new point of view on her work.
