The artist Daniel González invited the audience to experience the live creation of Wearable Sculptures during the performance Portrait Fashion Factory by D.G. Clothes Project at the Santo Spirito exhibition space on May 14th from 6pm to 9pm.
After a short interview about preferences and attitude, the artist created a Portrait Dress out of old clothes, such as t-shirt, pants, sweater, jacket or skirt. The partecipating performers walked down the red carpet wearing the unique Sculpture Dress representing themselves.
The Daniel González D.G. Clothes Project Factory is moving for one night to the breathtaking framework of the Santo Spirito in Sassia location, place created in the XV Cent. by Pope Sisto IV to welcome pilgrims in Rome. During the performance, the D.G. Clothes Project Factory will produce Wearable Sculptures in unique pieces, “mixing shoes, t-shirt, objects, fabrics, accessories and different styles to create clothes that represents in a unique intimate way the person wearing them”.
Founded in 2004 by Daniel González, the D.G. Clothes Project develops a unique approach to fashion using materials, styles and forms with a visionary mash-up, adding an intrinsic conceptual value. Each creation is a unique piece, born within a thematic project or collection, following the imaginary of every single personality, like portraits do.
