Runway 3.0 Fiber Design Accessories & Wearable Art

A very special new element has been added to Runway 3.0 from the  Fiber Design program in the Design Department at Buffalo State College. In addition to a new Jozef Bajus student created mini-exhibit titled,  “Fiber Design: Fashion Accessory Project,” the Fiber Program will have a special wearable art section in the Runway event.

A recent post titled Runway 3.0 Wearable Art Design Award details the new award sponsored by Elaine Polvinen and the judge for the award, Ginny O’Brien.

Professor Bajus details the fiber design student participation in Runway 3.0 below:

Fiber/Design Program display: while exploring the traditional and non traditional forms of the fan and telling a story connected with our past, family or friends were essential during the creative process.

Surprising combinations of different materials – paper, wood, cloth, threads, wire, plastic and everyday material, and exploring ranges of techniques such as felting, embroidery, shibori, papermaking and mixed media was an exciting part of the creative process. 

“Wearable Art” – garments and accessories at the show are specifically related to the Runway3.0 Technology: Obsession Progression theme.  Our main focus was on concepts, aesthetics, searching for final form and presentation of the artworks. Part of the wearable art collection will be also included in a special category of the fashion show. The process trail of the fan and the wearable art assignment was documented in a journals which contains research, inspirations, concepts, sketches, and photo images of the final artworks.

    Terrific work, Josef! It’s new, gutsy, frivilous, feminine and best of all most are wearable. I love the wool neckpieces, the delicate hood, honeycomb neckpiece. Such new idea continue to emanate from fibers. Bravo!

  6. Adam’s delicate, obsessive stitching into wooden fans pierced with tiny holes is an impressive use of a traditional technique in an unconventional medium.
    Nice intersection of wood and fiber design ;~)
    His bent wood and textile hat and vest is innovative also.

    Of course Stephanie’s layers of screen mesh assembled into a wearable vest is out of the realm of predictable use of materials also .

    Can’t wait to see what the fiber students do next year ;~)
