Vivian Hackbarth

Vivian Hackbarth’s clothing is clear-cut and simple. This fashion designer was folding and plaiting, aligning and superimposing layers of fabric around the human body, thus creating geometrical cuts for unobtrusive garments. By carefully selecting the types and weights of the fabrics concerned, plus appropriate patterns and colors, she skillfully determined the clothes’ function, as well as the effect they create when being worn. The results were garments that do not constrict their wearers, but enwrap them, easily adapt to and simultaneously adumbrate their figures, and also suit their individual styles. For her own exhibitions, Vivian Hackbarth developed conceptual and experimental creations on the theme of “figure – space – bodily space”. Vivian Hackbarth, who died in 2018, won an ART AUREA AWARD in 2015.
