“D.I.G — Dress information group was a collaborative project initiated by professor Joke Robaard at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
In this project we took a closer look at garments and accessories concerning clothing clothing habits and tried to define what exactly changed in people behavior ad dress code within the last years.

My research for the D.I.G. focuses on the closure of tops. Referring to Roland Barthes ” The Fashionsystem” the research examines the basic structure of a divided garment, it’s closure with it’s attachments and it’s mobility.

While investigating images od magazines and observing peoples gesture and hand-movement when handling buttons and zippers, the research considers a possible change in attitude and behavior of individuals wearing divided garments.
As a result the research attempts to ascertain a potential symbolism of open and closed garments and wants to reveal a change of unapparent / unconscious trends.

As part of the exhibition get real / real self by Joke Robaard and Giene Steenman. The Groupproject D.I.G. of the TXT Departament was shown at the Amber Arnhem Modebiennale.”
