The contrast between backstage and the auditorium at a theatre becomes most strikingly obvious when you view both together, and the only way to do that is from behind the proscenium, centre back on the stage, looking out at the rows and rows of seating. This collection presents this contrast in woven form, as a series of ribbons and trimmings for fashion and accessories.
Combining the colours of the grand auditoriums, with the geometries found backstage amongst the set, props, industrial elements of these areas. The collection aims to bring together the grandeur and the practical, the gilt and gaffer tape and the fun found everywhere in a working theatre.
