Skin as clothing, skin as extension of the body









What I'm wearing under the black bustier are actually tights, yes the stuff you wear on your legs.... but drawing inspiration from a picture of one of Lucy McRae's works, I decided to try out something new that relates to skin for art and it's perfect! Created a "skin tight crop top" that's customizable and definitely open to so much potential and development. It's simple to do, simply cut a small U shape at the crotch area of your tights. The larger the hole, it can become an off shoulder crop top that actually STAYS off your shoulders. Some other ideas: shred and continue "laddering" the legs of the tights, rip it...do whatever. Clothing is just like an extension of the body, like a second skin. Always fascinated with that concept ever since I first saw the works of Kawakubo and Chalayan. So please go ahead and try it out, send me pics too I'd like to see what you can come up with!
