All Photography for Metamorphosis of Narcissus by Andrew Seot
Alternative Fashion Week 16.04.12
Alternative Fashion Week hosts this debut womenswear collection from the studio of young, up-and-coming designer V I C T O R I A G E A N E Y Taking initial inspiration from the power of an unhatched egg, and borrowing Salvador Dali’s painting title ‘Metamorphosis of Narcissus’, the collection takes the concepts of power and energy literally, making use of electrical wires and light to ‘power’ the garments. Electroluminescent wire is encased in transparent egg sculptures and radiator reflective foam is used to create a reflective, egg shaped skirt. LEDs and electroluminescent wires hang down, dripping and dousing garments with illuminating light.
Informed by the emerging Post-postmodern movement, the conceptual womenswear designer V I C T O R I A G E A N E Y produces multidisciplinary fashion, art and science amalgamations during this socially and environmentally aware green era. Metamorphosis of Narcissus explores the possibility of garments which can be viewed as fashion and art, whilst exploring the reuse of hardware materials. Technology, fashion and art converge in this debut multidisciplinary and environmental collection. With accompanying film ‘Guir’ directed by Andrew Seot (Guir on youtube.com).
