Suzaan Heyns‘ collection for Autumn/Winter 2011, ‘Die Vorm’, was a startling examination of the human form, externalised.
“I wanted to take the inside of the body and reveal it on the outside, flipping it inside out. The idea behind this collection was to flip fashion on its head by focusing on the inside of the body, rather than the outside”.
Produced by renowned fashion show producer Deon Redman and featuring an opening short film directed by Jeana Theron, the collection is a visualisation of Heyns’ trademark “conceptual androgyny and steel-edged femininity”. The footwear for the show was provided by edgy UK label, FINSK and it looks epic. I love that the show was such a production – the hair and makeup make me think of some kind of Transylvanian swan princess.
