Are you a stylist

    Deborah van Acker

    Feminist Fembot


    This silhouette was designed as part of a collection showing stereotypical characters from the
    Austin Powers-movies, known for their parody of sixties spy movies and filled with explicit slapstick
    humour. In this silhouette, the attraction of the manliest man, Austin Powers, stands diametrically
    opposite the power of seduction of the independent woman, the Fembot.
    In order to enhance the parody and slapstick elements that are typical for Austin Powers, some unusual
    fabrics and graphic details found their way into the conception and styling of the design.
    Fur was used to induce the idea of a hairy chest, plastic nipples were added as a Fembot feature.
    Feminist Fembot: designed for hazardous seduction.
