There is no way around it...this man was a god! During my last brief (Shape Making) I looked at his designs from the mid 1900's because of the way he created silhoiettes with unique extra space between the body and the garment. This was towards the end of the Victorian era just as byers were wanting a change from the traditional fitted Cictorian garments. He was clearly influenced by traditional eastern clothing such as the kimono which would have been completelty innovative to western fashion in those days...

These are some of his designs that I pretty much love...with LOVE!
I think these cocoon, streamlined shapes would be a perfect silhoiettes for showing off a detailed textile design...knit maybe!
