To live is to enact a personal mythology – an interwoven series of visually-encoded stories – rich with the same stylistic elements that define every other art form. Our identity is not merely a disposable garment, shed simply because it requires mending, appears old, or has changed beyond recognition; nor are the outer symbols we assume to communicate this inner reality meaningless fashion trends to be forgotten. Instead, Lace Exoskeleton encourages individuals to utilize sustainable, Eco-friendly, and modular concepts to build their personalized “exoskeleton” of collaged, appropriated and collaboratively-constructed fashion pieces that form a continuous artistic gesture of creating, sharing, borrowing, altering, and re-creating visual identity. Life – including the ways in which we decorate our bodies – represents a collection of fleeting moments punctuated by the myths, stories and patterns of self-discovery that become the first thread of meaning in a life long transformation.
Lace Exoskeleton challenges customers to take their fashion statement further by collaborating in an interactive artistic experience, which encourages these individuals to utilize items purchased from Lace Exoskeleton to create truly personalized, fulfilling, visually engaging, and conceptually stunning wearable art that grows and adapts to the person – rather than the person adapting to fashion itself. Through empowering customers to assume artistic authorship over the aesthetic impressions and persona they actively create – and curate – via fashion, we hope to capture the essence of each person’s innermost visions, dreams, and existential reflections. To live is to enact a personal mythology – to create an interwoven series of visually-encoded stories – rich with the same stylistic elements , satire, symbolism, irony and beauty that define every other art form.
