LA Weekly's Shana Nys Dambrot talks LeggoYourLogo
Posted on 02 April 2015
7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. April 4
Designer Victor Wilde says he makes clothes “because we can’t always be naked.” And, mostly, he’s right about that. Except when it comes to his upcoming performance at L.A. Weekly’s Artopia event (which this writer is curating) and his Bohemian Society label’s new ready-to-wear collection and naked-interview video documentary series. Debuting tonight with a fashion show and screening (plus tequila bar and DJ sets), LEGGOYOURLOGO is a cross-platform exploration of how branded fashion helps to both create and conceal our individual identities. The hook of the videos is the simple idea of talking about clothes without wearing any — revealing a deeper set of meanings to the garments we do choose. And the hook of the collection is the removal of sections of the textile, which not only creates design elements but also transforms your skin into the logo of yourself.
