_ fabrics interseason ®
3rd Collection EQUINOX fabrics interseason ® deals with
the phenomenon of the Mourning Dress (Das Trauergewand).
mourning garb symbolizes the anachronistic relation of our
society to death but also still represents another maximum
of unmodernity or a religious consciousness of tradition.
Prescribed dress order and strict operational sequence of
the funeral ceremony, which is separated strictly from the
everyday life as formal affair, represent a standardized mourning
ritual, which concentrates only on the physical death of a
person. Religious institutions still have a large authority
within this area and more influence than within other areas
of public life.
the marginalization of death in everyday life the members
of the family, kin and friends usually are not prepared to
react individually in case of decease. In such emotional stress
situations logistic and organisational interests in the likes
of obituaries, burial, etc. are delegated to experienced professionals
e.g. funeral homes, priests and florists. Death is bureaucratized
the conception of this " dark " collection not only
the tradition of Modernity and sacral/clerical codes played
a substantial role, but also the function of funerals, which
deliver a perfect setting of sociological and social position
for a quasi " public procession ". Considering this
fact, the interests of ___ fabrics interseason¨ are not
situated exclusively in the design of an alternative mourning
dress, but also lie in a new interpretation of a traditional
mourning ritual with regards to an individualized ceremony.
