Egon Schiele Inspired, Gayeon Lee SS19
Gayeon Lee was selected by the British Fashion Council to showcase her Spring/Summer 2019 collection for London Fashion Week. The presentation was inspired by the twisted shapes and the movement in painter Egon Schiele’s figurative works. Incorporating choreography by Glen Snowden using a mixture of professional ballet dancers and models, set to the backdrop of early 20th century piano music.
The collection combined distinctive shapes with a contemporary interpretation of 50’s fashion silhouettes in structured volumes and gamine looks. Taking notes from Egon Schiele’s signature expressionism, the presentation itself displayed texture and movements that would have likely been muses to the artist’s own work.
