Abstract [en]

This paper explores the fundamental meanings of deconstruction in fashion design and has the aim to investigate deconstruction in feminine ideal. It also stresses other thoughts of deconstruction in terms of philosophy through Jacques Derrida, architecture and philosopher Peter Eisenman and how deconstruction can be applied to find parallels between its setting and the setting it is compared to. Since the 1960s, deconstruction is a term that has been interpreted within many fields and traversed across different media. Influential Japanese designers have used the term in their works, juxtapositioning them to traditional Western ideas to create clear contrasts between stereotypical and categorised perception and unconventional interpretations. During the 1980s, designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto explored the term to subsequently create a great distress in the fashion field. Their designs were examples of archetypes evoked from the past and presented as newborn strangers or dismantled ghosts. These designers investigated the mechanical functions of each archetype as they sought to find the meaning of each garment to later reinterpret its traditional essence. Also, they questioned the relationship between body and garment, raising thoughts of whether or not the bearer of the garment was personified to the garments traditional significance. The deconstructed element chosen for investigation in this project consists of a personification of the silhouette of the 1870s dress. This personification is discussed in terms of social and moral standards and constrictions as well as the political function of the dress. The fact that you could deconstruct a 1870s dress is clearly a way to take a historical archetype from its traditional meaning and place it into a new context. Similar to Jacques Derrida, the works of deconstruction in fashion design discuss our assumptions of archetypes and whether or not these archetypes can ever lack of historical or individual meaning. The constant dialogue with the past is a catalyst to reinterpret standardisations in fashion design through questioning the conformity of archetypes.
