FASHIONING RADICAL CHARACTERS
Pictoplasma presents Not A Toy – the first book on the growing influence of Character design in fashion and art. Over the last decade, they have playfully sampled and remixed their way through visual codes and media, confronting the viewer head-on, regardless of cultural background. Now, this aesthetic strategy has a strong influence on contemporary fashion design. International artists create playful dresses, avant-garde costumes and hairstyles, re inventing the human body and sending their radical, new Characters onto the catwalk and beyond.
