Polly and Olga have engaged 10 local artists to work alongside them in creating dynamic fashion garments inspired by existing works from each of the artists’ practice. The works are a response to the current trend of fashion houses appropriating imagery from the arts in fashion design. The resulting garments are being shown alongside their source artworks, together commenting on consumerism, fashion and feminism. This exhibition transforms the gallery into a radical ‘fashion parade’ of wearable art and its inspiration.
