Dressed Up – Marie Sloth Rousing (Denmark)

Dressed Up is a conceptual fashion project – an investigation into the barriers between clothing, objects, and bodies. Created by the Copenhagen-based fashion designer Marie Sloth Rousing, Dressed Up proposes a new kind of wearable that combines the properties of both a chair cover and a shirt, and which can be worn by objects and people alike. Sloth Rousing’s design uses Apparel and Drop Kvadrat Febrik textiles which blur together to envelop both body and chair. It is testing the boundaries between the human body and objects, a reflection on our approach towards understanding and designing for these fields.
