The Installation

Backstage to Runway | Projection

1st September , 2015

‘It is really important to me to work with people like myself, who are absolutely passionate about what they do; usually it is an obsession. If you are creative, every experience in life is important… I am at my best professionally when I work with people who are at the top of their fields, and whom I trust absolutely.’
~ Collette Dinnigan

Runway shows are an essential part of Collette Dinnigan’s communication and marketing, providing an alluring platform to present the designer’s latest ready-to-wear and resort collections to influential buyers and media. These carefully crafted shows concisely express the designer’s vision for the collection and their genesis brings together a hand-picked team of creatives from models and stylists to hair and makeup artists.

This ‘runway’ show was filmed with Dinnigan and her team, especially for this exhibition, featuring over 100 signature looks from the past 25 years. Alongside it, behind-the-scenes photos provide a glimpse backstage.
