So as if the theme of danger and adventure (something along those lines anyway..) for the AUT fashion exhibition wasn't enough, I found a bit of 'emergency' fashion designed by Stuart Sproule who is based in Canada. Creating pieces from safety harnesses and buckles, these pieces are supposed to challenge the typical way we peruse the way architecture is used.


Architecture is designed as a controlling edifice that ushers people this way and that, circulating them through entrances, allowing and denying visual connections. So what if you leaped off a balcony to get down to the street? This is one of the ideas that drive Sproule's work. In a way, he creates fantastical situations in which the conventions in both architecture and fashion are made unclear.
