Friday Oct 15th: Adorn - House of Organza
So here it is, the second edition of "House Of Organza" - a collection made by a collective of connected designers. The show launched yesterday as an exhibition and film projection in the window of Vogue Fabrics and screened simultaneously over on SHOWstudio. Jez Tozer shot Jourdan Dunn in each designers piece in a moving set of stills that graduates from black and white to subtle painted pastel hues that intensify to deep golden tones.
To incorporate the allocated 200 gold pins into my submission I sewed them down in a gold-work embroidery technique with brick stitches. Ive wanted to do goldwork for so long since learning the basics at Hand & Lock Co. and finally I had the perfect opportunity. I geeked out for days carefully couching down the tiny dressmakers pins and larger hat pins, which you can see in this print of Jourdan peeping through.
Here are Craig Lawrence's cuffs and Lyall Hakaraia wearing one of Craig's S/S dresses by his own piece for House of Organza. The final portrait is Dr Noki in his installation in the hallway of Vogue Fabrics for the Frieze weekend of events "Dalston Hotel". If you go over to SHOWstudio you can see each adornment )LYALL HAKARAIA, JUDY BLAME, DR NOKI, PIERS ATKINSON, CRAIG LAWRENCE, PINS LDN) styled by curator Kim Howells. The collection is now available for press loans and we cant wait to see here they end up as last time both Lyall's and Laura's appeared in the Tim Walker willow pattern story in British Vogue.
