Zana Bayne plays to social taboos, launches new season

It wasn’t the gallery’s air-con that had people piling outside of Chelsea’s CATM gallery in ninety-degree New York last week. There was no air-con.

Phoenix Keating: fetishism meets classicisim

There’s a reason why Phoenix Keating always show his trans-seasonal collection pre-MBFWA (Australian fashion week) and it’s not a financial one. Keating has his own niche of clients; imagine the likes of Lady Gaga and John Galliano – that’s who he designs for. Duly so, for his pre-MBFWA show in Sydney this week, a mini squad of Gallianos and Gagas gathered in a church to…

From concept to reality: Lady Gaga’s Asian Tour costumes

You know if an outfit involves robotic thigh-high boots, tubular PVC details and gloves with mirrored nails, it could only be created for one person: Lady Gaga.

Sorapol’s cartoon fairytale couture

These out-there outfits are the outfits fairytales dream about. Meanwhile most of us in waking life wouldn’t dream about wearing some of these pieces down the street; but even the most creatively outlandish are still a marvel to look at. Others – like a vibrant blue tail-hemmed dress or this soft, pink, fringed number – have the head-turning capacity of something theatrical, without competing with…

Lady Gaga: the nude body as scenography

“Her body is not a territory to conquer, it’s rather a stage on which you can set up a new scenography each time,” says Francesco Bonami of pop phenomenon Lady Gaga.
