Garments and Constructions
22 September – 28 October 2000
Fascia was a capsule collection of garments and constructions partly designed through chance processes in which various sections and edits of aircraft were combined and fused together to create new forms and structures.
Simon Thorogood’s second collaboration with the gallery invited the audience to wonder through a ‘forest’ of these structures where they would interact and interplay with the body to propose very simple ‘fashion compositions’.
A complete ‘family’ of 9 Fascia constructions were shown alongside two garments from his S/S 2001 collection. Two mannequins were provided by Adel Rootstein.
