ABSTRACT
This article focuses on clothing themes displayed in the fashion show titled "Crossing the Line: Wearable to Unwearable." The artwork in the show encompassed a variety of mediums, including book arts, installation, performance, and sculpture. The seven artists featured have crossed multiple boundaries in their fiber-related creations. All of the artists dealt with the relationship of clothing to the human shape. The works explored new forms for embellishing the body and became ways for the artists to discuss issues of identity and self-protection. Some of the artists created art that is unwearable but is rooted in the symbolism of decorating the body.
