Melitta Baumeister is a German fashion designer who believes in the challenging process of textile construction featuring silicone molded garments. For her 2013 Parsons graduation collection, Baumeister merged sculpture and installation art into a science fiction film complete with futuristic spacesuit material. Baumeister uses silicone to create a rubberized, pliable fabric with bounce and structure somewhat like neoprene.
