I stumbled upon Elsa Schiaparelli in a Vogue article chronicling her work. I am very intrigued by her designs because she incorporates surrealist elements that I really enjoy, surrealism is my favorite art style. She also collaborated with Salvador Dali and created some amazing pieces including a blazer with dresser style drawers, a show hat, and a lobster printed dress. They also worked together on a few perfume bottles. I’m also drawn to her work because I very much enjoy 30s-40s silhouettes. These silhouettes in combination with the surrealist art style just makes it so intriguing to me and has inspired me in multiple ways.
