On my way down for the Skin and Bones I went into the Sorrell Foundation Young Design Center to reminisce on my year 2 project.
Being a student studying interior design I find it quite ironic the clothes at the Skin+Bones xibit totaled my complete attention instead of the architectural models and floor plans. I found I was up close and personal with the fabrics and pleating and gave the models a quick glance. The curation of the show was well organized and easy to follow. The exhibition starts off with shifts in architecture and fashion in the 1980s and by 1990s there is an introduction of sophisticated computer aided programs that turned ideas on paper into reality.
