Madame Vionnet

 In Articles

Turen går jo snart til Paris. I og med at det er en studietur må den fylles med faglig innhold. Det er ikke noe minus for oss fashion-nerds. En av utstillingene i Paris akkurat nå er Madeleine Vionnets restaurerte samling av Haute Couture kjoler. Hun fant frem stoff og saks på 20-tallet og revolusjonerte bransjen med sin geniale Bias-cut. Noen ord om hennes ‘oppfinnelse’, som gjør en nerd som meg vill av begeistring:

‘Some of the great progress in fashion design was introduced by Madame Vionnet and her bias cut. When a fabric is cut in 45 degrees with respect to the direction of gravity, shear resistance decreases, so then a flat surface deforms in-plane. There are aesthetic advantages in having deformation of this type; the garment follows the contour of the body, and the proximity of fabric and skin generates a thin layer of air between both. This layer produces a very effective adhesion, and keeps the garment close to the body in the presence of movement, the clinging effect.’
