Saturday 4th August: Björk wears Craig Lawrence - the story behind a dress
I came to know Craig Lawrence through Patrick Wolf as he was wearing Craig's miraculous designs whilst on stage with my set design. From this moment I knew that another energetic musician would look incredible and enjoy the experience of performing in these gravity defying pieces. I set about getting the wheels of harmonious momentum in motion of pairing Craig with Björk by contacting a mutual friend - ADi of threeASFOUR. ADi very kindly passed on images of outfits that I put together to intice and inspire this dream happening. ............. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Fast forward a couple of years and he recieved a request from Björk's assistant James to borrow some looks .............. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> fast forward and this week Björk wore an archive catsuit from Craig's degree show to attend the Polar Prize ceremony in Sweden to receive a prize from His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf.
Here are photos from Craig's CSM show of the collection that was inspired by tinsel and foil concertina Christmas decorations. The specific purple all-in-one was Craig's interpretation of Christmas joy turned fierce and sexy! Who better to wear this invention to full effect than Björk! High Fives all round!
