Fitting Tales – the textile publication
Bitten Stetter, as the tailor of tales, presents a new product line called
"Fitting Tales" and leaves the traditional rhythm of designer collections
behind. She is bored by fashion uniformism, synchronized global players and
textile disposables. And thus reacts towards the fast paced trends of today
by treading new paths and presenting "Fitting Tales" - her concentrated
comprehension of design – as a fashion tale, which tells of marvelous and
zeitgeistly occurrences. Bitten Stetter sees herself in her new chosen role,
beyond the mainstream, as a counter public in fashion and as a publisher in
trends. These circumstances give her exceptionally large liberties in terms
of content and design.
Fitting Tales informs
To inform stems from the latin "informare" = to form, to give sth a form.
This is the main thought behind "Fitting Tales". The clothes not only form
new trends, or the body, but also playfully form the state of the wearer,
especially his of her point of view and feelings. Thus it is a message
embedded in textiles, that could activate in the wearer a change in his of
her thoughts, actions and feelings.
Fitting Tales unites authors
The content is determined and supported by the philosophy, ideas and
prognoses of the designer. In regard to the creation of new worlds, the
cooperation with other designers, musicians, artist and authors point
towards subcultural movements stemming from different perspectives of
design. It is thus that through the interaction of clothes, accessories,
photography and illustration the readership is engaged with all senses into
the story-world of "Fitting Tales".
