Designer Bart Hess and filmmaker Ruth Hogben joined forces for a live stream on Tuesday 20 August and Wednesday 21 August 2013. The pair could be seen live online creating their contribution to our Punk film season. The series' brief asked various creatives to embrace the spirit of DIY in punk and create a garment to feature in a fashion film.
Inspired by punk's association with metal adornments, Hess built a garment entirely from studs, pins and chains. Hess is known for creating experimental fabrics that can drastically alter the body when used sartorially, and now he has developed a method of intuitively manipulating the shape and movement of his studs with magnets to create a wearable object. Hogben captured the creative process and used the footage to create a unique fashion film for our Punk fashion film series. Watch her final film, Pins and Needles, in our Punk series now.
