Iconoclastic Fantastic

School

Teacher

Frances Kervick

Design Description

Iconoclastic Fantastic is inspired by both Jean Paul Gaultier & Janelle Monáe. Gaultier’s reputation as a dazzling non-conformist designer was sealed from men’s skirts to conical bras. Janelle Monáe’s signature black & white tuxedo style and her commitment to gender neutrality & non-conformity on & off stage are admirable. When conservative heteronormative systems endanger LGBTQIA lives, Monáe’s style is a guiding light. The outfit is woven from Scrapyard seatbelts and old furniture webbing into a coat with charity shop donations to finish. This outfit is gender-neutral.

Materials Used: The coat is created from an old tent base, 100s of seatbelts from scrapyards & old furniture webbing. These are intricately woven, hand-sewn together & worn over a charity shop trouser suit, which has been trimmed with meters & meters of frayed & plaited seatbelts. An old sun hat, tape, ½ a jewelry box & reflective tape, painted in monochrome colors make up the eye-catching headpiece.
