From March 23rd through to April 8th, BONAVERIMILANO hosts a new exhibition featuring bust forms – an ancient visual tool that continues to remain relevant in a modern context.
The bust form is extremely versatile – either tailored, covered, painted, enriched with accessories, made of technical or natural materials and presented with or without arms. It continually adapts to its function: something that is extremely important for the work of the designer as well as the narrative called on when displayed.
Bonaveri takes every opportunity to share the capabilities of this unique tool. To appreciate the contemporary ability of the bust form, Bonaveri and Istituto Marangoni have collaborated here, showcasing both the manufacturing capacity and creativity behind the form. The result is a project where busts are employed as a means to interpret fashion trends.
Students in fashion styling have decorated each bust form as if they were an artists canvas. Each form is used to represent a vision of fashion trends for 2017.
Edgelands, Digital Wave, Encounter cultures, Pause, are the evocative names of the macro trends for 2017 that students have staged within BONAVERIMILANO. Each macro trend is used to further describe the atmosphere, intuition and sensations behind future fashions.
In addition, students from the Master in Photography course at the Istituto Marangoni have documented all phases of the project, from initial concept through to installation within the showroom. Their photographic records give an insight into the decorative process in creating each of the bust form displays.
