light & space

I have been wanting to share some photos of sunset as experienced at artist James Turrell’s  Amarna installation since I first went to view it but how it connected with a blog about fashion and flowers eluded me…until last night.

Fashion designer Alexi Freeman launched his Autumn/Winter White Noise 2016 Collection at twilight out at MONA using Amarna as the runway.

James Turrell is an American artist primarily concerned with light and space. Amarna is one of more than 80 Skyspace installations he has built around the world and is best viewed at sunrise or sunset.

Alexi Freeman collaborated  with shoe designer Preston Zly and accessory designer Kate Rohde to present an ethereal collection.

The evening was  enhanced by Byron Meyer’s live soundscapes, Ainslie Walker‘s beautiful bespoke scent Nocturne filling the air and of course those other two fashion show requisites – friends and champagne!
