“Three + One,” Art and Fashion Hybrid, 2021

The title “Three + One” indicates that fashion in this capsule is a reflection of the artistic field of three paintings and one sculpture. The paintings “And Only Sparks Will Fly,” “Living Water,” “Secret Thought,” and one sculpture “Green Light,” which is also an old mannequin torso. I transferred fragments of each artwork into the fabric prints, with the chosen clothing colors deriving from the paintings’ palettes.

In 2020, while creating the paintings, fashion styles, and a new “Julia Janus” concept, I spent all my time at home due to the pandemic. Naturally, for the collection’s Lookbook and editorial photoshoot, I became my own model and found locations in my home that reflect the vibrations of my inspiration sources—the paintings.
