It’s finally here! After all that waiting and wondering, LRFS have let us in on their 10th anniversary theme:
The name suggests a certain relationship between the ‘iconic’ within fashion and the concept of time itself. We can expect to encounter time as an experience, time as a way of breaking boundaries and creating new and exciting ordeals, both within fashion and within the human exposure to existence.
The theme certainly leaves us thinking about the passing and progression of time and, with a month left until the show, time doesn’t seem to be going fast enough!
Complimenting their theme, LRFS have also publicised a series of beautiful re-creations of some of the most remembered style icons throughout history. The photos pose a modern twist on their traditional appearance, whilst managing to maintain the salient essence of the original image. On the LRFS website, each photograph features a subtle animated movement in part of the picture, perhaps pointing towards the fluidity of time that is to be explored, revisiting past moments in order to reinvent.
In previous years, we’ve been dazzled by the likes of Samsara (cycle of the earth), Wanderlust and Through the Looking Glass. The show is the most eagerly awaited event at The University of Leeds and, as it’s their 10th anniversary, we can anticipate one that will be even more extravagant and lavish than ever before, the team aiming to break all previous records by raising £18,000 for their chosen charities, Leeds Mind and Dementia UK.
LRFS have introduced us to their 5 part scenes: Birth, War, Peace, Death and Re – Paint Your Future. We’re intrigued to find out what this might mean and what each story might unfold for us. How will this shape our perception of how we view fashion throughout time or how we view fashion in relation to these particular life experiences? It’s clear that the zealous team have a focus on creating a show where the infinite nature of time and the ceaseless influence of fashion are brought together in a way in which we feel a part of it.
