BROW WOW WOW
Fashion People collaboration with Ricarda Bigolin
Participatory Catwalk Fashion Show
London College of Fashion, London, 2011
Fashion People is a participatory project that aims to mix the roles associated with members of a fashion system, taking fashion to the people and inviting collaboration in all parts of the process.
The first Fashion People event was all about the brows. Held at the London Fashion Colloquia in September 2011. Fashion People collaborated with 20 Melbourne designers who were invited to create two sets of brows that reflected their design practice. The brows were shipped over to London to be presented at the London Fashion Colloquia as the BROW WOW WOW 2011 catwalk fashion show. People at the Colloquia were given a coloured sticker that indicated a role that they would play in the making of a catwalk fashion show. 30 people received a yellow sticker which indicated 'model'. 4 received a green sticker which indicated 'photographer' and 5 received a red sticker which indicated 'fashion critic'. Together the roles came together to present the BROW WOW WOW 2011 catwalk fashion show!
