Yuri Pardi's incredible, monumental dress forms are like sculptures, architecture, or landforms I love them! Yuri has just graduated from the University of East London, his graduate collection 'Monument' is constructed from grey wool with foam inserts to create the geometric protrusions. These dress forms are incredibly minimalistic in their calm grey frontal presentation, but the voluminous forms and silhouettes that they present from the dorsal or rear have extraordinary drama and impact.
"I designed garments that morph from the shapes of the body into 'pure' geometrical shapes,
I wanted to create a collection that could show that reduction and Minimalism are far from boring, and can be just as powerful as other visualities without being as loud."
