THE MET CAPE

This project was created for the Manus X Machina competition in collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

The textile I created combines both the luxury of brocade and the modernity of inlaid "beading" appliqué on an unconventional surface - "trapping" the various shapes and sizes of metals in silicone surface that is applied onto the brocade, and is merged with it.
