Inspiration must come from the art works of Gustav Klimt, the representative artist of Vienna Secession and Emilie Flöge, the representative of "Fashion Innovation."


Gustav Klimt's Masterpiece "Kiss"

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), an Austrian Expressionist painter, the founder of Vienna Secession, was influenced by many artists from different countries and took in essence of Byzantine mosaics as well as decorative art from Eastern European artists. Therefore, his paintings boast Mosaic style. Klimt's art work has a strong sense of decoration and incommensurate seriousness and sadness. Klimt was born in an old and well-known family which had a long history of making silver and gold jewelries. That's why he often used gold color in his art works. He used many special techniques in his paintings, including embossed painting, gilding, embedding barium, and sticking feather. These made his art works bear special artistic effect.


Emilie Flöge Fashion works


Emilie Flöge Fashion works

Emilie Flöge (1874-1952), an Austrian couture, Klimt's life partner. Emilie Flöge advocated pragmatic and comfortable style in designing. She was the symbol of Feminist Movement. Unlike the typical tight style at the turning point between the 19th and 20th century, Emilie Flöge's fashion works were loose and comfortable. Instead of corset, her fashion works were cozy in shoulder and had large sleeves. Flöge's taste in fashion was rebellious and out of ordinary. As the symbol of innovation in the traditional design circle, her works were not accepted by the people at that time. But now, they have been the popular classics.
