Product design graduate Amila Hrustić of Bosnia and Herzegovina has created a collection of dresses embellished with clustered geometric shapes.
The Plato Collection is inspired by the five different Platonic solids - tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron, which are recreated in paper and attached to fabric in different configurations.
Hrustić's has just graduated in product design at the Academy for Fine Arts in Sarajevo and the collection was her diploma project.
Photographs are by Irfan Redžović.
Here's some more information from Hrustić:
"Geometry existed before the creation" - Plato
The title of this diploma project is "Plato's Collection" and the main inspiration for the entire Collection is located in Platonic solids. The collection is consists of five unique dresses handcrafted from a combination of textiles and paper.
Plato, the great Greek philosopher, studied what we now call "Platonic solids". No one knows who first described the shapes of these bodies, perhaps early Pythagoreans, but some, including Euclid, say that it was a close friend of Plato's Theaetetus.
There are only five Platonic solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron. This diploma project examines the concept of geometrically arranged and structured space in relation to the human body.
It is the most appropriate to call it a study of perception and contrast, and study of relationship between artificial and organic, amorphous and geometric. Each of the five Platonic solids is a basic building element for making dresses.
Simplicity of form and use of black and white print patterns on rigid paper emphasize the sculptural collection, its attitude toward the body and overall expression in space. Therefore, Plato's collection does not fit into the category of everyday fashion and can be considered as a stage costume, and is intended for high-aesthetic stage performances, fashion editorials and other special purposes.
