On stage, the ample white strapless dress of a still model serves as a screen for all kinds of projections that echo those of a big screen in the background. “Mixing 3D video with certified fairy tale stories and tailoring tradition” is the idea of the atypical Mountain Ash.

Opulent Virulence
“My collection is inspired by my fascination with nature; an interpretation of the complexity and unrestrained beauty of nature, which I express through complex layering, colour and a maximalist aesthetic that takes joy in abundance and opulence. I create my own ecosystems of layered and built fabrics in knit, print and unconventional embroidery. My clothes are in a state of rewilding – I infect the silhouettes with rich colourful textiles, giving them life. I grow my embroideries over graphic and sculptural silhouettes to emphasise and contrast the organic and the built landscape.” Rosie Danford Phillips

Volver a Mirar

Ana Teresa Barboza mixes embroidery and drawing within her collected works. Using the fur of animals as a perfect leeway for her stitching technique, Barboza layers thin strips of string expertly to imitate the texture of a creature’s fur. While animals and vegetation are richly detailed in her works, she chooses to display her human subject matter as basic, black stitched figures or graphite drawing. The end result is a texturized feast for the eyes.
