Jasna Bajlo is a designer with a background in architecture and costume design for theater.
Having passion for both construction and drama Bajlo creates bespoke sculptural garments and accessories. All the pieces are designed to be timeless and not conform to trends. Each piece is carefully handcrafted in her studio.
Her inspiration comes from nature, light and music. She believes that creating a strong conceptual backbone for her projects is important because it gives her a set of parameters within which she can experiment. The most important influence in her work is the dialogue between materiality and light which she explores in every project.
This garment was selected as a finalist of World Of Wearable Art held in Wellington, New Zealand. The garment is created for a heroine that lives in a dystopian future scenario in which civilization is faced with the degradation of the environment but still pursues beauty in the things that surround them. The intention was to create a garment that gives protection but in the same time reveals the fragility and beauty of the human body. The garment is made entirely of leather. Individual pieces of laminated leather are hand stitched with golden leather cord. The main pieces are connected with brass metal fittings.
