Opening Ceremony SS 2016

For SS 2016, Opening Ceremony was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, a legendary architect. Wright was a fan of “intentional communities”, a self-sustaining mini utopias.

I participated in the process of concepting & installation for the actual show. Taking an enormous, former bank space in the financial district in New York, the team intended to show an ideal euphoric space that might have been the community utopia that Wright always dreamt of.

Inspired by his signature style of mixing nature and building the team created a beautifully designed space with tons of plants shaping the runway in the way that models and audience can interact with each other.

In addition - to bring his touch of designs in the space, I took his old sketch works of stained glass and designed the large scale declas for the windows and lights.
