Google+ Hangout on Air - Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting

Leather Jacket by Izzy Camilleri

Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting invites you to think critically about the relationship between function and fashion in our daily lives. The history of western fashion is a sequence of changing shapes that often favours form over function and comfort. IZAdaptive (2009-present), by Canadian designer Izzy Camilleri, is a revolutionary line of fashionable and functional clothing for the growing demographic of men and women who use wheelchairs. The exhibit contextualizes these innovative garments within Camilleri’s oeuvre and historical 18th-19th century fashions also designed for a seated, L-shaped frame.
