the absent model - reflections of a stylist's work.

not your average floordrobe, this one-day exhibition of body-less outfits has been put together by recent lcf graduate, tory turk, not just to torment you but to raise some awareness about the frequently forgotten work of a stylist. we think Tory’s got a point here, i mean, when was the last time you looked at an editorial and thought ‘the stylist behind all of this must have bundles of talent and dedication to have brought that much energy to the shoot’? - whether it's the stunning natalia vodianova in the new dtella mccartney campaign, or timelessly beautiful kate moss wearing galliano in vogue’s september issue, the list goes on kids…you get the idea. we’ve all got our own relationships with fashion, and it’s safe to say most of us disregard the stylist's work when we flick through our latest glossy. not so Tory, who describes them as the ‘spirit and soul behind the shoot’, which we think is just magical. the installations she has created are less magical, more poignant: fashion imagery juxtaposed with garments carefully styled and presented in what appears to be some kind of bewitching disappearance of bodies. interesting. kind of disturbing. so go along, open your mind and show your appreciation for fashion. if you’re not feeling appreciative, go and mingle, it's art, you can tell your cool friends you went to an exhibition. we’ll be there; thursday 21st october, 10am-8pm @ the wand youth club, 30 petworth st, wandsworth, london, sw11 4qw.

please leave your models at the door.
