    Background: WHILE ITALY'S TOP DESIGNERS ARE SHOWING GENERALLY CONSERVATIVE FASHIONS FOR AUTUMN AND WINTER, DEMENICO ALBION HAS COME UP WITH A NOVEL SIDELINE.... HE'S DRESSING HIS MODELS IN GLASS, WOOD AND EVEN STONE.

    SIG. ALBION SEES HIS LONE ATTEMPT TO USE RADICALLY DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN CLOTHING AS BEING IN THE GREAT TRADITION OF FLORENTINE ART. DRESSES MADE OF LITTLE SQUARES OF STONE WERE PARADED IN PIAZZA SIGNORIA, AGAINST A BACKDROP OF SOME OF THE GREATEST ITALIAN SCULPTURE. THERE WERE OTHERS MADE OF SECTIONS OF WOOD AND TINY PLATES OF GLASS AND LITTLE MIRRORS.

    SIG. ALBION, LYRICALLY DESCRIBING HIS INTENTIONS, SPEAKS OF THE NEED FOR ART TO BE PRACTICALLY INTEGRATED WITH EVERYDAY LIFE. HE EXPLAINS THAT HIS STONE DRESSES ARE HOLLOW SCULPTURES. BUT THERE'S NO MENTION OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SIT DOWN IN THEM, OR IN HIS CREATIONS IN GLASS.
