Vivienne Westwood
Not a Vanitas, but it has a really interesting draped silhouette reminiscent of drapery in classical art.

Dolce & Gabana Fall 2012

 

As much as I like some of these designs, I want the shape of the dress to have as much meaning as the illustrations on them. I feel that the silhouettes, with the exception of Vivienne Westwood’s piece, don’t necessarily suit the theme and imagery of the fabric.
