We are looking for a confident actress to host a Salon Fashion Show on the 21st June 2012 (6- 9pm) central Sydney. This will be a one night only event and should be lots of fun!
The performance is based on the Chanel archives at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale the Emperors New Clothes. The performance explores how we experience fashion through words and descriptions. The models will be naked but they will walk and pose as if they are wearing the Chanel garments described. Through these descriptions the audience is invited to imagine what these clothes might look like.
Your role as the host will be to run the show and announce/ describe the 'imaginary' clothes being performed by the models. The descriptions are the authentic words used to describe the 1920s- 1960s garments in the Chanel archive at the V&A and really get the imagination going! Please contact us if this role is for you!
