About this event

This series of photographs is the outcome of a collaboration between photographer Lukasz Kapuscinski and Fashion and Textiles student Lara-Sophie Schneider, both of whom study at the University of West London (UWL). The photographs chart Lara’s process of creating a garment from her collection Divine Femininity.

In making this garment, Lara researched Greek mythology at the British Museum in order to find ways to convey female fortitude and elegance, which she sees as being associated with the representation of Greek goddesses. She draped fabrics and incorporated macramé to give the garment a more contemporary feel. Lara’s work highlights the importance of sustainability and handcrafts in contemporary fashion.

Lukasz’ photographic documentation of Lara’s creative process focuses on the level of detail and care that went into the construction of the garment. The images take the viewer through the different stages of production, to the finished piece being modelled by Lara herself. The final image is set in the gothic ruins in Gunnersbury Park to showcase the dress and its relationship to history and nature, while offering a distinct association with Hounslow where the garment was designed and made.
