Dayton area fashion designers show collections in Columbus

Undergraduate student Jo Baudendistel, originally from Farmersville, was inspired by a different version of Marie Antoinette for her collection, called “La Petite Maison De La Reine” or “The Little House of the Queen.” “While we have versions of her in pop culture that talk about how she was materialistic and vain, she actually hated court life and preferred to spend her time in her country home with a few of her closest friends,” Baudendistel told CCAD. So, rather than draw inspiration from the typical image of Antoinette outfitted in a traditional corset and hooped skirt of the times, Baudendistel focused on Antoinette’s tendency to wear comfortable and colorful clothing.

“I made my collection based on the idea of gambling and

When Dolce & Gabbana sent drones carrying handbags down a Milan runway in 2018 reviews were mixed but the move was largely seen as a fusion of tech and the fashion industries.

Just a few months later a fashion show in Saudi Arabia which used drones to float clothes on the catwalk became a viral sensation for all the wrong reasons and was labelled bizarre. Two QUT researchers say the ghost-like effect was uncanny because one of the central tenets of fashion theory is that without a body, fashion does not exist.

Fashion senior lecturer Dr Tiziana Ferrero-Regis and architecture senior lecturer Marissa Lindquist have co-edited a new book Staging Fashion: The fashion show and its spaces (Bloomsbury).

“The model’s body has always been as essential to the fashion show as its space.
