Theatre de la Mode for Fashion ScoutFriday, 15 August 2008
Debuting its ready-to-wear collection in September, artisan London label Theatre de la Mode (TDLM) is selected for Vauxhall Fashion Scout 2008. The fashion initiative identified Chris Kelly and Sara Flamm among one of the best emerging fashion designers. For SS09, TDLM will present 'Undertone', a capsule range for both men and women focusing on contemporary, neo-classic designs of loosely structured silhouettes.
TDLM not shy of challenging the conventional status quo, will present its debut collection via a short film. The set will resemble a shadow puppet theatre and the short reel will unveil the design process of TDLM, working in layers combining animation and film. The final image will be one of a stop frame, creating an overall understanding of the Theatre de la Mode concept.
