In a way, it is less work for me, than also posing in the costume  I just focus on the costume design job.  let the model or the performer interpret my creation.

It is quite tricky because  to embody my designs, you need to understand the character of the costume and not let them wearing you but still have the charisma to wear it a subtle balance to find. 
This is a meeting between 2 creativity, the performer’s one and mind, sometimes I see model wearing my creation posing just as if it was a fashion item and it look a bit akward wereas you need the personality to embody the character. That is why I usually prefer performers.

I just give away the cloths, giving free rein for the setting, the aesthetic, not being the stylist or the artisitic director just collecting the dresses back with the final pictures.
I like the fact that my costume have their own life, they are working for me while I am doing something else at the same time.

Amy Kingsmill , extremely passionate performer about visual expression, like to explore her own identity through the unique clothing combinations that she style and creates.

« I love to create work that communicates a creative idea or a specific intention.
To me modeling is an extension of my art practice. I find shoots with a theme, message or concept behind them the most productive. As an artist I am capable of thinking in a creative way and helping with the construction of shoot themes etc. A lot of my work as a performance artist involves the creation of characters and styling them myself, and so I have a large wardrobe including latex, masks, haute couture pieces, vintage pieces, fetish and much much more. »

Amy found the perfect house for the shoot with crazy wallpaper and quircky decorative objects! 

'Amy Kingsmill, is an artist who, through incorporating her love of all things surreal and fetishistic into her performance work, creates looks that viewers have described as disturbing and arresting, but also empowering. ' -Rachel Hardwick, Skin Two.
She recreated her all world around the dress, I made for her  with Loulou Reloulou (made with more than 50 colourful dolls).

This dress is made out of thousands of piece of colored rubber. 
The fact that is not fabric make an amazing motion while twirling. 
by Tony Patrick Smith

The story of this dress come from a facebook status. A  Facebook designer friend using a lot of rubber in her work,  moving away was giving away a big bag full of rubber . I jumped on the chance and went the day after collecting the rubber with my big suitcase. 
Like in the majority of my creation, the idea come from the material rather the design, it is like a reverse process where the final garnement exit because I found an interesting material and not the contrary, whitout this gift, I would never have made this dress and not even think about doing it. 

I was inspired by the rubber material being the rubber man in my friend Mette Sterre show, wearing a 30 kilos rubber thousands of rubber bans put together,

In a last post I was wearing myself this afro-inspired tribal costume but I felt it would be nice to get a black model to match with the black head dolls.
