"The video is a collaboration between me, director Zofia Urszula Komasa, performance artist Bożna Wydrowska and model Weronika Ukleja and is a presentation of my collection. The concept originated with a part of my research centered around the archives of american vogue from the 50/60 where I kept noticing clothes were given names according to their “functions”, the functions being rather archaic and very specific , a “cocktail dress” a “after 5 pm coat” and “six o clock dress”.
I decided to give my looks names referring to entirely modern actions of a contemporary woman, a zoom look, a victory suit. In a conversation between Zofia, Bożna and myself we sketched out the “characters” that would wear each look, and Zofia and Bożna assigned very simple, but significant movements that speak to the “ function” and are repeated, growing in intensity. All the while Weronika walks in circles around Bożna referencing the couture presentations of the 50/60, held in salons, very intimate. The music is by Krzysztof Komeda, a polish composer active mainly in that time."
