Design Statement

Golden beards, glitter eyebrows and floral suits can be seen as memorable costume moments from The Fairy Queen. Drawing influence from the decadence of the 18th Century, Gods and fairies appeared in lavish contemporary outfits. As a means of elevating their status in the presence of mortals, the gods were shown with period make up: powdered faces, rouged cheeks and heavy lips. This concept was based on the idea that the Gods and fairies, being superhuman, had lived through all time, picking and choosing elements from the ever changing modes of mortal fashion. Luminous againt the dark backdrop of painted forest scenery, the figures took on a magical quality in their sparkling outfits.
