I was recently asked to curate a showing at Superchief Gallery during NYFW, so I took the opportunity to bring together my friends Whatever21, Pictureplane and Molly Soda to exhibit "Limited Edition" works inspired by branding and fashion in the modern era.
I created the following pieces, titled "ICONS". As you can see, I created replicas of iconic looks worn by famous women on the red carpet. The reason I chose these outfits is because they are culturally so important, they caused such a stir at the time, they were incredibly risqué. Covering my entire body in gold leafing symbolises the trophy, the idol.
a) Celine Dion's backwards Galliano suit- she wore for the Grammys when she won for "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic
b) J-Lo's green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy's
c) Liz Hurley's versace Safety Pin dress she wore to the premier of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" in 1994
Thanks to everyone that came out for the launch :)
