Susan Dimasi and Chantal Kirby of MATERIALBYPRODUCT have created a series of dresses that they call 'curtain gowns' which were inspired by a found lace curtain. Over the past six seasons, the studio has also been playing with the notion of a portable fashion house.
In the latest MATERIALBYPRODUCT collection, the duo introduces illumination. This concept references the candlelit atmosphere of an 18th-century ballroom and electric chandeliers in 1920s dance halls.
Implications - Susan Dimasi and Chantal Kirby of MATERIALBYPRODUCT are ingenious designers with a knack for acutely capturing a contemporary edge. The collection is at once breathtaking and stunning.
