Here, in the final segment of our Swarovski Collective series by videographer Meagan Cignoli, we get a special (and very speedy) look at the making of Wes Gordon’s latest collection . Before his first-ever runway show on Tuesday, the designer explained, “This season I wanted to capture a modern, fresh, clean energy.” He added, “In particular, I wanted to create texture and depth from a rich palette of materials, while still maintaining a sleek silhouette.”
One of the key materials in his collection was, of course, crystals. “We used over 7,000 Swarovski Crystals for the tank gown,” said Gordon. “When we were fitting it this morning, it was reflecting light all over the room—that was a real highlight.” Watch the Style.com exclusive stop-motion film, here.
“Seeing everything come today, from the choreography and the music to the collection, was really a moment,” said Prabal Gurung during a final run-through before his Spring ’14 runway show on Saturday. “It’s that moment you actually see what you anticipate happening at the venue, and it really excited everyone involved.” And a moment it was. In case you didn’t see it on your Instagram feed already, all of his models came out in silence, got in a see-through box, and remained there until the show’s end.
As part of our ongoing series by videographer Meagan Cignoli, who was enlisted by the Swarovski Collective, we have an exclusive glimpse at how it all came together. Here, your recap, in less than sixty seconds.
Friday night, Suno’s Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis unveiled their “African maximalist” Spring ’14 collection in New York. Before the new looks hit the runway, director and videographer Meagan Cignoli trailed the duo as they put the final touches on things. “We actually started with African Bakuba cloths, and somehow took them to a whole other place,” says Beatty of the design process.
Cignoli’s stop-motion video, the first in a series commissioned by Swarovski, makes its exclusive debut here. We’ll be premiering two more films from the project—which highlights New York-based Swarovski Collective designers including Prabal Gurung and Wes Gordon—later this week.
