Emotion Collection: Black Point Dress and Blue Air Dress

Bugg, Jessica (2013) Emotion Collection: Black Point Dress and Blue Air Dress. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Bugg, Jessica

Emotion Collection comprises two performative garments (Black Point Dress and Blue Air Dress) that draw on Bugg’s published research into new methodologies for design and communication at the intersection of fashion and performance. This practice-based body of work seeks to connect designer, wearer and viewer on an experiential level that is derived from and performed through body and clothing narratives. The researcher’s methodology of oral history interviews draws upon embodied experience, memory, emotional and sensory responses to clothing that through analysis uncover shared responses, which are employed as physical and emotional triggers in garment design. This challenges conceptual approaches to fashion design where the wearer is not actively engaged as well as linear narrative and character driven methods in costume design. The methodology dismantles hierarchical structures in the production of an integrated interdisciplinary work that places clothing and the body at the centre as a generator of meaning and performance through design.

The Black Point Dress was shown as a performance installation comprising the garment, film and live performance at the WYE Arts Centre in Berlin for Berlin Fashion Week 2013. It was also exhibited at RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne for 2 weeks in 2013. Bugg conceived, designed and directed the work applying the methodology developed through her research. The Blue Air Dress film from the collection was exhibited at ‘Critical Costume’, Arts Centre, Edge Hill University, Liverpool 2013.
