I was contemplating as to which forum I should create this thread under but I settled for this one, so please move it if it's not the appropriate one
One of the stylistic techniques that has fascinated me the most in fashion is deconstruction. I think there's something extremely organic and unapologetic about the process of deconstructing a piece of clothing to its semi-original state. I feel like it's a deliberate defeat over a piece's structural integrity. At the same time there's something as equally paradoxical about it, because it's a controlled kind of chaos; the way in which the pieces are carefully disassembled and then reassembled into something else entirely. This is what interests me the most.
I know that desconstruction in fashion was especially on the rise during the 1980s and that Margiela was particularly famous for it:
Oh man, this has always been one of my favorite trends in fashion It was at a prime example for me during Fall 2006 and Spring 2007, I loved all the clothes that looked like they were falling apart and had seams on the outside of the garment.
I feel like the recession had kind of hindered this trend though, because when people have to pinch their pennies, most probably wouldn't want to buy things that look half done
