Find of the Week: Beatrice Oettinger

Beatrice Oettinger constructs dreams and fabricates magic.  She creates garments fit for a fairy princess; Titania from A Midsummer Night’s Dream would be honored to wear one.  Fascinated by the magical clothes of myth and legend such as Hecate, the Greek goddess of magic, who wore a garment of saffron, and Hera, the wife of Zeus, who wore a dress of feathers, Oettinger reconstructs them from imagination and fabricates them from the exuberant materiality of nature.

Fashion is global.
Across all seven
continents people
create, innovate, share,
swap and reappropriate
clothing every day to
suit their style, to
express their personal or
cultural identity.  By
being aware of the
world around us, we
become aware of the
opportunities that exist
to identify or
differentiate our own
lives. By being part of
the global fashion
village, our own choices
inform others.

Every issue focuses on
each of the continents,
exploring the lives of
those who live and
work in each area.
See.7 magazine distills
this concept into words
and images through the
eyes of photographers,
stylists, art directors,
artists and writers from
around the world.
