Fashion is liberated of the now and thrown into the tantalising imaginarium of Livia Rita. The outfits are alive, wandering around new worlds. Take your beautiful big red heart to the next level; it’s an orgy of inspiration!
Livia Rita will celebrate the release of the HEART TATTOO and SUNSCAR collections and inject London Fashion Week with an existential cross-arts haze.
With a bigger gang of super-creatives and performers, Livia Rita merges fashion with live music, dance, living sculpture and live art.
Livia Rita is creating performative fashion collections for each song of her forthcoming debut album.
HEART TATTOO: http://spoti.fi/2DnZrsr
SUNSCAR fashion collection: www.instagram.com/liviarita
The work is developed at the Barbican with mentoring of Lindsay Kemp (David Bowie & Kate Bush) and Lea Anderson.
During the day of 17th & 18th February, a transgressive gang will perform a Guerilla catwalk with Livia Rita’s outfits through London. It will seduce cameras and be a manipulative criminal to London’s depressed normality, in the lead up to the big bang at the Yard.
Also, we will launch our MAGAZINE at the Yard!
