"Siamese Accessories" V&A Late Night 24 September 2010

With Puff&Flock and Designersblock

I designed an exclusive series of costumes for an interactive performance taking place during the V&A Late Night last 24 September. The "Siamese Accessories" only function if worn by two people at the same time. Visitors were invited to pair up to try these costumes. Participants became Siamese twins and formed new creatures. The new pair was invited to learn to move as one organism and create a choreography. Visitors also had their picture taken as a souvenir!

"Bridgitte":


Bridgitte has a mirror inside so people can see each other as well as
having a private conversation in the middle of the crowd.
