The Art of Making Squishy Human Costumes
After finished the education in fashion design, artist Daisy Collingridge became specialized in fabric and textile art. Born in London since 1990, she likes to explore a different way of seeing the human body.
With joyful, fascinating and squishy attitude, all humans are different.
The ideal body presented to us from fashion magazines or fashion presentations is just a label that doesn’t reflect our reality.
Daisy, however, tries to change our perception.
She created her first costume in 2016 at the World of Wearable Art competition.
She uses colored components to craft each part of the human anatomy and always starts with the head.
The materials used in quilting and hand stitching techniques are viscose, polyester, plastic, and cotton.
The “Clive” Costume
Daisy’s artwork can be seen on tour as part of the 62 Group of Textile Artists exhibition.
The costume named Clive is pushing her craftsmanship to the extreme but the final results are really amazing.
The human body is sculptured into the randomness of eye-catching forms.
