“I went to the Isabella Blow exhibit in London. It’s so incredibly touching, beautiful, inspiring. Monsters should go, her story is poetry. Issy, so many artistic minds she discovered. A reminder to cherish creativity, and urge the world to honor the artist while they are living”, Lady Gaga tweeted after visiting the “Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!” exhibition at Somerset House on Saturday, together with Philip Treacy.
A special moment requires a special look, and Gaga’s black get-up was a selection of pieces by (at least) five young fashion talents.
The latex net high neck gown was created by British fashion designer, Sashalouise, pioneer in new latex techniques, such as marble sheeting and net.
The long-sleeve dress is available at Kim West.
The hand-crafted leather fringe corset, shoulder pads, necklace, wristlets and belt, belong to this year London College Of Fashion graduate, CINDY ZHANG collection, titled “Reborn”.
The first collection of the London-based designer focuses on the concept of “contrast between firm and soft” and was inspired by “the fascinating shape and the concept of Armour kits at the Wallace Collection in London”.
Gaga’s headpiece was created by Irish hat designer, Margaret O’Connor.
Margaret told Gaga Fashionland, the piece belongs to her brand new collection, she’s currently working on with a friend of hers, makeup artist and art director, Astrid Kearney.
The creation, made out of plastic, copper metal, beads, threads metallic fabrics and wire buckram, all painstakingly woven together, can be worn both as headpiece and neckbrace.
Maria Black black silver “Ri” Earrings (also available in gold) and Maria Francesca Pepe ring provided the finishing touches!
Those of you who live in or plan to travel to London, can visit “Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!” – a major fashion exhibition celebrating the extraordinary life and wardrobe of the late British patron of fashion and art, presented by Somerset House, in partnership with the Isabella Blow Foundation and Central Saint Martins, until March 2, 2014.
