How women create fashion and have been portrayed within fashion has rapidly evolved since the introduction of the postmodernist movement. Textile designs that expose female flesh were once seen as provocative, whereas now, designers use female skin exposure to symbolise themes such as freedom and relaxation.
Postmodern creative textile design symbolises more than freedom. Designers such as Vivienne Westwood have embodied the postmodern movement by “constantly looking forward to the future of fashion but drawing from its past”. However, there are alternative restrictions placed on artists nowadays, namely the contradiction between lifestyle affordability and opportunities for postmodern designers.
While through fashion, “women’s bodies aren’t just objects of desire anymore”, up-and-coming designers have to resort to splitting their time between countries, like Olya Kosterina, who has to work in Russia and LA to keep costs down. While postmodern fashion has shed the barriers associated with women’s textiles symbolically, cities are pushing creativity away and creating new obstructions for fashion: “less creativity means less change, less radicalism and less progress”.
Where does this leave postmodernism in textiles? It means that while designers are embracing the female form as a non-sexual expression through more risqué designs, fashion remains stilted but instead in a contextual sense.
