SCORE: Philip Treacy/Nick Knight/Judy Blame/Linda Evangelista
2 February 2006
This Thursday, a host of colourful characters will congregate on SHOWstudio
to create a live performance piece that will form the basis of Philip Treacy's
debut collection in collaboration with British sports brand UMBRO for
Autumn/Winter '06. Drawing on historic, chronophotographical images by
Eadweard Muybridge to create a balletic motion study, a cast of dancers,
gymnasts, Premiership footballers and iconic models will lend their
extraordinary physiques to this exploration of Treacy's 'luxury sportwear'
vision. Shot by Nick Knight and styled by Judy Blame, the event will be
choreographed to an innovative musical score by Olivier Alary and will provide
the basis for an experimental sound and motion installation to be unveiled
during London Fashion Week on 16 February.
