Fashion Soirée with Studio Toogood

Housed within the elaborate Brazilian Embassy in Paris, this installation for Barbara Casasola for Paris Fashion Week 2013 is a lesson is contrast and restraint. Studio Toogood have used stark white geometric forms and frames, in direct relationship to the shapes and profiles of Cassasola’s work, to bring about a backdrop for the collection to be shown against, while not detracting from the ornate interior of the embassy.  Having created this dynamic and highly layered space for people to interact with the collection, the rooms almost take on the energy of a diplomatic party and given the highly disposable nature of the installation, the space, like a lush  ambassadorial soirée, can only be enjoyed for a fleeting, but very grand moment.
