“In fashion, text is mostly implemented after the piece of clothing is created or produced, as a tool to reflect upon, describe and construct the value of a fashion or fashioned object (in fashion magazines for example). In Dictionary Dressings, text is used as a starting point, not to describe or reflect but to initiate and activate. As such the act of reading is directly implemented as a form of production.” —”Introduction,” Dictionary Dressings

Dictionary Dressings focuses on the literal interpretations of dictionary definitions of garments to expose the gaps between a garment’s intended use, and its value as an object of fashion.
