About

Paco Rabanne emblematic mini dress in gold plastic discs and metal jump rings, circa 1996 Paco Rabanne made a comet-like entrance into the fashion world in 1966 with sparkling no-sew dresses made of linked plastic and metal. These dresses were worn over the naked body without any shoes. This dress is a commercial example of the designer’s 1966 couture collection that transformed fashion aesthetic for ever. A confidently bold fashion statement, bolstering both a futurist aesthetic as well as an avant-garde artistic yearning, which was to use found objects and materials such as rhodoïd and other plastics, previously not regarded as materials worthy of being used in haute couture garments. ThIs dress was featured on iconic model Donyale Luna on the 1966 cover of British Vogue. Audrey Hepburn wears a of Paco Rabanne plastic discs dress in the film “Two for the Road”. Paco Rabanne’s innovative construction and unconventional use of industrial material have inspired current generation of designers who are once more approaching fashion from the perspective of craft techniques and sustainability.
