Reworked, recreated, repurposed, recycled - sustainability is sexy. The Spirit of The Black Dress is a not-for-profit organisation, providing a platform for emerging Australian designers to showcase their creativity and innovation using eco-friendly materials to inspire the classic black dress.
From silk to bamboo, hemp to human hair, the ten winning designs are born of an Australian ethical consciousness, offering a unique design perspective in response to the rapidly changing fashion and global landscape.
The architecture of the dress is as important as the dress itself, and each garment comes to life with a personality of its own.
Daphne Guinness consolidates her move into music with a theatrical, mesmerising new music video directed by acclaimed image-maker David LaChapelle. Evening in Space was produced by Tony Visconti and is the first single from Guinness' upcoming debut album, which is billed for release in September 2014. The video features custom fashion by many of Guinness' favourite houses, including Iris van Herpen and Noritaka Tatehana, alongside pieces from her own celebrated clothing collection.
