Somewhere between a cocoonand a butterfly, or a cloud and an angel, Selene Giorgi’s Exquisite one off creatis flutter and float aroundt he body, simultaniously covering and revealing through sheer layers of crushed pure silk organza.
Extraordinary sculptural shapes are achieved through felting and the splicing together of tiny shreds of silk with trailing rows of tiny pearl edge seams.
Giorgi’s work is ethereal and transcendent, clothing for the angels that walk amongst us, produced in limited edition, and exclusively in pure, natural fabrications.
Working from her studio store in Milan, Giorgi crafts a poetic collection with her avant-garde aesthetic expressed through dimension and texture, rather than color or pint.
The collection is produced almost entirely in black and white from silk organza, silk taffeta, and cashmere, with hand felted details in wool and silk.
Giorgi is an artist who uses clothing to express her art, using fabric, fiber and yarn to carve poetry in three dimensions. Trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera, Italy, Giorgi truly is a sculptor of cloth.
Designs are seasonless, and created without pre conceived ideas, but by instinct alone, no sketching, no draping, or patternmaking, but born from the randomness of the form that technical and manual skills create.
Designs are created from random forms, and the artists awareness of the unity between artistic creation and the integrity of nature.
