Care Tags

Postby germinal » Thu Aug 01, 2013 7:26 pm

A space for all care tags, name tags, hang tags, hangers, labels, packaging, insignias, stickers and receipts. Though mostly care tags

Some Paddy Ervell to start it off:

i like that he puts the season and the name of the piece on the tag.

This is 100% cotton so i shall not be obeying this warning.

i'm sad that care tag typography is typically not v. customized and beautiful. i kinda was toying with the idea of a v. literal care/tags forum banner, but still trying to figure out how to accomplish it. some generic corporate faceless sans, all caps, and a bunch of impenetrable iconography should do it.

I really like the iconography of care tags and to be honest, when I get a tag that isn't super standardised and generic I feel sort of weird.

I especially like the iron dots one, because my iron also has those dots, and there's something cool about checking the tag, then making the right icon light up on the iron.

Like stuff comes out and at first it just looks really creased, but then on closer impression it's actually faded along the crease so it won't iron out. It sucks.

Normally happens to stiffer stuff like trousers, but lately has happened to my beloved emmett shirts =[

i find it fascinating to destroy something you put great effort in. i'm sure it can be a lot of fun, like stepping on sand castles

because art

What methods did you use to destroy the reported 6000 garments from your fashion archives?
The pieces where put through a big shredder truck under my supervision.

Was there a particular part of the archives you most wanted to destroy, and why?
In 2009 and 2010, I donated a large volume of my body of work in fashion to the most important fashion, design and contemporary art collections worldwide. After a fire in the building where our studio in New York is located, which could have destroyed the rest of the archive, and after going for months through the pieces to see in which condition they are, I slowly became intrigued by the idea of destroying it myself and using it as raw material for my art. I shredded all the pieces without remorse or preference. It was about erasing the difference of what they once stood for.

in the introduction to her book Fashion, Charlotte Seeling wrote:Fashion as such did not become a fashionable concept until relatively recently : It was not until 1860 or thereabouts that Charles Frederick Worth, an English designer working in Paris, had the brilliant idea of attaching labels bearing his signature to any gowns he designed, just as if they were works of art. From then on, ladies of quality would only wear garments designed by a well-known couturier—these were classed as fashion,anything else was mere clothing.

That's really interesting sknss, do you have the book?

Are the revived House of Worth still going?

i have the book and it's great. it's very detailed and there are lots of pictures. i recommend it to everyone who wants to learn about fashion history and designers. i think it can be used as an encyclopedia

I am a person who wants to learn about fashion history and designers! Good times recommendation, thanks sknss.

Tomorrow I'm taking a book out of the library about the history of the Antwerp Six - it's written in Dutch but has some great interviews/articles and pictures of them all really young. Going to translate/collate some of the information and put up a general thread here for Belgian designers.
