PHOEBE ENGLISH: INANIMATE, ANIMATE. (ONLY) HALF THE REFLECTION.
An exhibition of two halves. The first half, an intricate installation, displayed pieces from the AW19 collection which had a strong emphasis on sustainability and included hand made textiles from recycled and waste materials, fabric saving methods and sustainable fabrics. The unveiling of the collection up-close allowed the viewer to have a closer insight in to the construction and technique of Phoebe’s design process. In the second half of the exhibition sat the Phoebe English marionettes. The 30 puppets, initially displayed at the V&A, span the label’s entire archive in miniature, each delicate composition magnified in its reduced state.
