Radiographie De La Mode

The opening and private view for the exhibition, Radiographie De La Mode at Espace, La Vallee Village was held on Saturday the 19th of March.

Over 20 X-rays or perhaps more appropriately, radiographs of fashion and haute couture images were displayed at the gallery and a wedding scene was recreated in X-ray with the bride groom and bridesmaid's outfits represented in life-size.
A number of limited edition Tee-Shirts are available too which depict a racy basque, a DJ with heaphones and microphone and for the kids, a teddy bear - all sporting Nick's signature. La Vallee Village promoted the exhibition in each of its boutiques and shops and the show is proving popular with shoppers interested in seeing the fabric and construction that goes into the garments that they wear.

Limited edition prints mounted here on hangers and hung from clothing rails are also available to buy at La Vallee. The three prints depict a sequined disco bag, a bottle of perfume in a box and a subtly colured X-ray of a pair of sunglasses. These are limited to editions of 50.

We are grateful at Radar Studio for the dedicated advice and curatorial expertise of Benedicte Lesieur Jobbe-Duvall and also Daniela Ribeiro Pereira at La Vallee Village.
