Barbara Langendijk ft. Noon Passama @ Amsterdam Fashion Week

Barbara Langedijk and Noon Passama gave an amazing presentation during Mercedes-Benz Amsterdam Fashion Week, inspired by the people who used to wear a smocked garment, called the ‘smock frock’. Historically they were actually a group of tough men and shepherds.

The setting in the old gas factory was a great place for the presentation. The fashion crowd and press were put in a circle, fenced like sheep in a small meadow. Around them five models were waiting in the dark until the crowd was gathered and the spot lights turned on. See for yourself in the short video below!
Together with interdisciplinary arts company House of Makers, Barbara Langendijk and Noon Passamawe developed this scene.

There.
The flock has settled.
Letting go of the day outside, shifting slowly, nudging each other, remembering that they have been here before.
This is familiar.
This is safe.
They breathe, murmur, they’re being friendly and at ease.
Patiently waiting for what will be shown to them next.
They will gobble it up.
They’re hungry for it.
