London fashion week 17th february
TUPAC MARTIR TO DESIGN 7 SHOWS FOR THE LONDON FASHION WEEK: VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, ROKSANDA ILINCIC, TEMPERLEY, JWA, THOMAS TAIT, HOUSE OF HOLLAND AND MATTHEW WILLIAMSON
After the recent world premiere of his new fully-staged multidisciplinary work, Nierka, visual designer Tupac Martir will be presenting lighting designs for the most awaited collections at the London Fashion Week.
The trailer of Nierka, in which the director showed his artistry in the use of new technologies, was released today and can be watched at Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/36921768
Tupac Martir, visual designer and director of Satore Studio said today "After the emotional and artistic ride that was the creation of Nierka and the tremendous support that I got from my cast and crew, I am really looking forward to collaborating with the designers in their collections at the London Fashion Week."
The lighting for Vivienne Westwood s collection is designed to contrast with the traditional look of
the building; the catwalk will be lit in a daylight tone, with a combination in some cases of a tiny touch of tungsten in order to warm up the catwalk.
The overall theme for Roksanda Ilincic s show is a clear autumn day, very modern but with a touch of
the classical Victorian look, using inspiration from cathedrals and the way that light travels across the windows in similar buildings.
For Temperley, the space is not only used as a venue, but rather as the introduction for the collection, creating an environment that is similar to some of the memorials or great halls of the 19th century. Using single sources of light in the different areas as people are walking into the
venue, the idea is to create a space that looks vast and grand. The halls will have single sources of light, to create the illusion of light travelling through the space.
Tupac Martir also commented "Building on last year's presentation and the theatricality to the show at the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern, this year we are looking to create an atmosphere unlike what is usually observed at The Royal Opera House for Matthew Williamson s collection. By using
the different windows and spaces in the building, we will create different sources of light that will be hidden to the audience. Most of the guests of the show would have been at the hall, but most of them have seen the place lit for cocktails and intermissions, never for a show of this kind."
