A fashion launch performance.

Are our shadows extensions of ourselves? How do we dress these fleeting, ever-changing versions of ourselves? Are all shadows the same or are they constantly changing with our environment and the people we are with? Created by Romanian fashion designer Dinu Bodiciu, Shadowear is a collection of seven fashion looks based on clothing made for our “shadows”.

The cross-cultural project sees Bodiciu, who has fashioned the hats of the cult Hollywood movie series Hunger Games and dressed American Pop icon Lady Gaga, collaborating with Singaporean artists Bani Haykal and Lee Mun Wai to produce a performance that replaces the conventional catwalk in fashion. Animated by music and performance, Shadowear challenges our conventional definition of what it means to get dressed. This new fashion line makes us think about how we relate to ourselves and to each other, but also what it means for fashion to be cross-cultural and produced across different artistic languages.
