Louise Jarrige-Le Berre shows what is radical in tenderness – from the violence of a tenderness that is denied, to the tenderness of a protecting friendship, to that of a garment that builds, reveals, and restores. In her thesis, poetry and fashion converge to give voice to body language, making the muffled dialogues between bodies audible. Finding one’s form in the act of dressing, teaching yourself to get by with what you have, putting it into words: these are the issues raised in this work, resonating with the desire to define a poetic and political fashion practice, without which fashion is mere artifice.
