Earlier this year, Nick Knight embarked on a live fashion shoot with the help of couture doyenne Lady Amanda Harlech who styled incredible S/S 14 haute couture pieces from the likes of Chanel, Valentino and Margiela, on model and physics scholar Alexia Wight.
The trio sought to create a mathematical universe out of each piece, resulting in a stunning, delicate fashion film, created with the help of SHOWstudio video editor Younji Ku. Ku combined 3D scans of each look with the editorial work - which will appear in print in V magazine - alongside audio of Wight discussing the intricacies of physics.
The project was about exploring different dimensions,' Knight explains. 'I wanted to juxtapose what I, the photographer saw, against what the computer saw. When I look at the couture I see certain things that are useful or beautiful to me, just like when the computer captures the couture it also sees something that's useful to it, but that view is totally different.'
