Hotel The Exchange; Room of Misunderstood Creatures
Fashion could never flourish without the unbridled fantasy of its creators but these fantasy worlds can also reveal a darker side. Fashion illustration is a perfect medium to express these subconscious wonderlands. The Room of Misunderstood Creatures is a fashion installation including three lovely yet troubled illustrated creatures, a pitch black ceiling that is crying its dark tears down walls dressed in sheer white, and accessorized with hand-drawn, strangely proportioned furniture. Colourful shiny sequins everywhere, especially in the white lacquered floor and along the black tears add a magic sparkle to this gloomy setting. The complexity of the Misunderstood Creature is perfectly expressed in the custom designed fabric that dresses the windows and furniture, a triple layer knit with a dark nude skin, a core of black loop yarns and a sheer and shimmering nylon surface.
