V for Vendetta on the Runway…?!

V FOR VENDETTA ON THE ADRIAN WU RUNWAY | TFW FALL 2012

Well, we know of at least one designer who’s a huge V for Vendetta fan…. among a million other things, apparently. Not exactly how I would choose to reference a movie. What do you think of models parading around in, “look-at-me-trying-to-make-a-spectacle-I-mean-statement-about-politics,” Guy Fawkes masks?

Toronto Fashion Week didn’t know what hit it…and maybe neither did the designer….

Here, he attempts to explain:

“This collection is titled “Hierarchy of Needs”. I wanted to do a collection that ascetically looked dramatic, romantic, and a little bit wearable but very much a reflection of my own technique. Three years ago I came across a new way of sewing. I invented this sort of minimalistic bodice and ‘inverted pleating’ and it is these techniques that maybe have created a sort of new language in fashion. The cuts of the collection are taken by the ideas of old parisian clothing, the colours to the silhouette. Philosophically, I like my work to have context. I used the mask as a commentary to the specific comparisons between North American Politics versus European Politics and how it effects Human Rights by citing the movie “V for Vendetta”. My dream continues to be that one day I be hired by the house of Dior. I invite you to question every aspect of my work, from the pieces to the environment. I am inspired by people and people who effect my life. Enjoy”

And yet, I don’t think Raf Simons has anything to worry about.
