Primitive Streak Exhibition

Whilst in Sheffield I got to see a Sci/Art Fashion Collection called Primitive Streak by sister team Helen and Kate Storey (a designer and biologist respectively). The collection was fashion items based and inspired by the first 1000 hours of human life. The exhibition only showed 10 garments out of the full 27 items in the complete collection but I thought you guys might like to see them. It is a really interesting and different collection and I would certainly like to see the entire collection in person. You can read about the designers and the idea behind the collection on their website here.

I have included all the items accompanying texts so you can read what the garment is based on. Click on the images to enlarge them for reading.

This dress was so delicate and beautifully made.

Slightly strange looking but did look striking in the model photo.

The embroidery work was so detailed.

This hat was hanging from the ceiling about 10 feet up, not a great place to get a good look at it and impossible to get a photo of it, but it does look amazing!

This dress was so fun and funky, and totally something that I could see on the catwalk.

This jacket was stunning! I would have bought it if I could, so wearable and so sumptuous. It wasn't as way out as many of the other dresses and the actual pattern on it was very simple and elegant.

Slightly freaky but kinda cool.

This was a beautiful piece and stood out from all the others. I could just see it on a stage.

This was another incredible piece, so striking. If you actually took off the silver spine and hair the dress was very wearable and pretty.

So what do you think of the collection? Would you be interested in the rest of the garments if I could get images of them? Do you think sci and art have a place together like this?

On to other things, less fashion more bloggy!

A few weeks ago Lindsay of Lindsay Living gave me this award, but I totally forgot until today so Thank You Lindsay!
I would like to pass this on to some of my favourite Stylish ladies:

  2. Wow thank you for sharing this collection! I think using a theme such as biology to inspire a collection if fantastic, lots of designers use less obvious themes and the dresses are certainly striking. I never thought I would say this but I am in love with that sperm coat! Ha!
