Queen's New Clothes

Inspired by the Danish fairy tale "The Emperor's New Clothes" and Lady Gaga�s Orbit dress, we have designed and implemented a costume, The Queen�s New Clothes, which appears plain to the naked eye but exhibits changing patterns on photos taken at different times and locations. The process of making this costume has taken us on a journey of exploring the digital aspect and dual status of fashion, fashion as a dynamically changing and embodied visual communication tool, and the relationship between the fashion trendsetter and the audience.
