Guggenheim Museum Bilbao x IED
Fashion / Experiential Design
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) and the 60th anniversary of The Guggeheim Museum in New York, I was commissioned the design of two couture full looks, presented as a performance piece at The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
I was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's conception of the museum as a 'living organism' and the principle that guided his architectural journey. At its core, that principle was an aspiration for spatial continuity, in which every element of a building would be conceived not as a discretely designed module, but as a constituent of the whole.
Following this principle, I merged it with IED's institutional values of inclusion, diversity and cross functional education, to create a seamless journey that blurred any boundaries between dress, human and space.
