FALL 2020 FASHION SHOW
Fashion’s Time Warp
As the light dimmed to black an electronically controlled curtain lifted to reveal a front glass mounted seven levels high scaffolding with a choir consisting of over two hundred people each wearing different costumes representing archetype styles of clothes from the fifteenth century to the 1950’s created by the costume designer Milena Canonero, who has designed the looks for a few of Stanley Kubrick’s best-known movies including Barry Lyndon, The Shining and A Clockwork Orange. The choir group sang in unison a new song created by Woodkid and Bryce Dessner titled ‘Three Hundred and Twenty’ that resurrected the sounds of composer Nicolas de Grigny who was a contemporary of the composer Bach but never was recognized in any manner until now. The theater director Francisco Negrin directed the choir and orchestra in a live performance as the models took turns on the wooden platform set.
