Giorgio di Sant Angelo, Tribal Beauties collection 1988

Giorgio di Sant Angelo, Tribal Beauties collection 1988

The designer most often associated with experimental new fibers in fashion is Giorgio di Sant Angelo. He worked with DuPont to devise no only suitable replacements for wool or acrylic, but fantastic ones: silk that could stretch in any direction and new fabrics that were transparent, took color beautifully, and could be painted, tie-dyed, or embroidered. From the 1960s to the 1990s, he worked with Lycra enhanced materials of all kinds to devise ensembles based on such versatile elements as bodysuits that could double as bathing suits or evening tops, and tubes that could be worn as tops, skirts, cummerbunds, or shrugs.
