FEEL AND THINK : Fashion Runway Show & Tear-a-Way; Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) in partnership with UTS Fashion Design Department .This was the final instalment in the FEEL AND THINK: A NEW ERA OF TOKYO FASHION brought to you by the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF). You can read all about it over on my good friends design site Design Federation - love you Klaus & Co. I arrived just in time to see the last of the runway action in the Sherman, SCAF gallery space. Must say this was a fabulous installation piece and at the end of the runway show which was in fact a walk-around on the gallery floor not an elevated runway scenario.. at the end of which parts of the ribbed paper construction were torn open to reveal select fashion pieces hanging in the white, womb-like spaces. You will get the idea from the first shot in the series below. Congratulations to the 'emerging?' designers for some very clever and striking design work.
Somewhat strangely even though this is a SCAF event in partnership with UTS Fashion Design Department, I have still had quite a difficult time finding any-sort-of-relevant-information about the designers featured at this event. It certainly makes me feel for the marketing people as it seems obvious-to-me that their job is absolutely impossible to do! No doubt no-one can send through their CV - Design Concept Outline - it's just you with the PR job and your ass in the breeze! So I have culled what information I could from the SCAF Facebook page; please let me know any mistakes! Mouse over images for hopefully correct designer information where I could find some.. My thoughts on what (emerging) fashion parades need can be read here..
With fashion designers - 3rd Year UTS fashion students - in no particular order..
