London Fashion Week SS10: Peter Jensen
Peter Jensen’s collections never work as a collection for me until I know the context. Then it all makes sense. For SS10 he played with proportions in his presentation. With many designers choosing the presentation format over a show, it gives the designer more freedom in how they want their collection to be seen and also makes for many more art-fashion crossovers.
In Jensen’s case, he designed a collection, photographed it on models, shrunk them down and made his collection in miniature and then let artist Laurie Simmons photograph them in her dolls houses. The resulting larger-than-life photos were displayed in a presentation at the ICA with real models posing against them (to then be photographed by us). Surreal and fun!

A clever idea. I like that hen top.

OOO and he used the lovely Heidi Rock. Not a comment on his clothes or the presentation on even the blog, I know, sorry! It's just she's a friend of my daughter's who I've known for years so I always feel excited when I see she's out there working and it makes me giggle.
