ART SCHOOL presented their Spring Summer 2021 Therapy collection, with a runway film, set in Waterlow Park’s Kitchen Garden, Highgate, as part of the ongoing London Fashion Week. The collection features 54 looks, and it’s divided into three parts. With the FW20 collection Art School explores aspects of queerness and play on themes of community and kinship.
“With this show ART SCHOOL staged the constant journey of becoming. These themes are implied in each look as a form of embodied practice. This in turn is reflected in the dismantling and questioning of the normative or physically able body. For ART SCHOOL crip identity is a unique source for creation and beauty.
Tailoring is purposely oversized or pulled tight around the waist. The silhouettes equally emphasise the importance and restriction of movement and physical space. Leather coats are made from reconstituted cow hide and vegetable dyed. The gender-neutral uniform is a continuous theme which offers protection. Silk dresses and suited jackets have been slashed and frayed to expose layers of fabric and skin.” – from Art School
