Turkish-American designer Eda Yorulmazoğlu's textile creatures hover the line between bizarre fashion and wearable sculptures. Some ensembles boast horror movie-esque silhouettes like the all pink outfit that features a dismorphed tonal mask with holes, from which the model's blond hair is threaded. Other designs, such as the seaweed-inspired character, built on absurdism. In her artist statement Eda Yorulmazoğlu reveals that her textile creatures are meant to "distract people from their everyday lives" and "bring them back to a time of innocence and purity."
Each wearable artwork is a member of the progressive fantastical family. Celebrating imagination, acceptance, absurd shapes and vibrant colors, the textile creatures by Eda Yorulmazoğlu are a blank canvas for the audience, who can construct an imaginative narrative of personal characteristics, quirks and detailed histories.
