This collection by Graham Tabor for his SS 09 presentation surpasses all tests of time. Seasons become so impertinent in collections with such conceptual stature and the work remains as a body of art ~ expression. Tabor is inspired by what he calls an “archaeological dig: each fragment separate from the rest, almost veiling its origin. Translucent like tracing paper, constructed of torn stitches, openwork and punctuations, the clothes form a complex game of superimposition.”
A nomadic journey through the avant-garde mind is how I would best describe this collection. It seems that there was a great amount of seamless collaboration going on here with the creative team in order to bring these images to this level of emotional depth.
