Imitation of Christ Spring 2013 Presentation

Another sneak peak into the fashion productions that make up New York Fashion Week. Alexandra Shook from delayedmissives.com takes us into the world of Imitation of Christ as they present their Spring 2013 Collection Presentation.

Imitation of Christ Spring 2013 at the Bortolami Gallery was aptly titled This is Not a Fashion Show. After being greeted by a choir of girls singing Carol of the Bells, I made my way into the actual presentation. My first impression was that of walking into a woman’s boudoir or backstage dressing room: a row of models lined the walls, ranging in age from young girls to grande dames.

Ignoring everyone, they primped in from of mirrors and tried on looks from clothes piled on the floor. It seemed like the youngest ones were having the most fun, and I did get two of the them to pose in the mirror for me. If I had to give a source of inspiration I’d say the 1920s– the clothing shapes and even hair and makeup felt very Jazz Age. I felt that instead of a presentation, It was a performance art installation.

And we're also sort of pretending that we didn't even know it was there (or at least I am).

Yes there was but we're not posting those photos. We're assuming the whole "naked room" thing was an art installation

Hmm, interesting, not sure how I feel about that kind of set-up that you described! I suppose it was meant to be a bit voyeuristic? Also, someone said there was a naked room?!
