HOUSE OF ORGANZA, now in its third season, is the brainchild of stylist and brand consultant Kim Howells and fashion designer Lyall Hakaraia. Working as curators they pull together an ever changing stable of creatives to produce one-off seasonal collections, blending talent, personality and inspiration. After a successful SS11 season, with the projectʼs finale; the Jourdan Dunn film,screening on SHOWstudio, House of Organza is thrilled to present AW11ʼs ʻMuseʼ. AW11 sees Fred Butler, Piers Atkinson, Dr. Noki, Patternity and Lyall Hakaraia produce a collection of accessories and clothing that comes together for the very first time at the launch preview with powerhouse PRʼs Ella Dror and Ash Smith on April 5th, displayed in a set designed by Italian Vogue favourite; Alun Davies!

Inspiration for ʻMuseʼ sprung from the paintings of Yves Klein who created works of art in his eponymous shade of blue, famously using living 'human brushes' to achieve his ideals. The living canvas for AW11 is global muse and performance artiste, Mr Roy, who provides the body and soul for the work that the House of Organza collective have produced, both modeling the results for the summer photographic and digital media exhibition (date TBC) and providing the preview atmospherics with a recording of his poem recital created especially for the project. Each of the artists have been given a project manifesto, the poetry recital recording and a metre of blank canvas to paint in a blue of their choice and then... complete freedom to interpret the concept in a manner relevant to their specific arena of the fashion design industry. The results are a true celebration of talent, fashion disciplines and individuality.
