Remix: PAGEANT X Pieces of Eight
Independent Australian fashion label PAGEANT presents a select collection of archival garments, adorned & embellished by a group of jewellers at Pieces of Eight Gallery.
Embracing a spirit of artistic collaboration which defines & drives the creative ethos of both PAGEANT & Pieces of Eight Gallery, these garments provide an artistic canvas to be reinterpreted and re-contextualised by the hands of jewellery artists, presenting new ways to consider adorning the body.
Autonomous and audacious, The PAGEANT woman possesses a bold individuality and a keen wit. Engaged with art, music and culture, she is astute and streetwise with a thirst for new experiences, as are the artists represented by Pieces of Eight Gallery.
Lightweight mesh is a cornerstone material in every PAGEANT collection, which serves to create an alternate vision of femininity that is fresh, fierce and current. Remixed through the individual reinterpretations of contemporary jewellers, these pieces are given new life through a series of artistic embellishments and presented in a window installation at Pieces of Eight Gallery.
