About this artwork

Shot on Polaroid i-Type 600 / 5x8
Milano / 2001

“This Polaroid was taken at the show of a young designer whose name I do not remember, unfortunately. It was a group show, with maybe 10 up-and-coming talents presenting their capsule collections - often very experimental collections. Milano Fashion Week is a wonderful stage, the designers knew this was their chance! The fashion press was there, but more importantly, the scouts from the big bands. So it could happen that you would sign the contract of a lifetime that night.
I loved working at these events. They had a wonderful spirit, it was a creative atmosphere and the running-order was not as strictly arranged as in the big shows. The young designers risked a lot and were completely stressed - but there was always a lot of laughter and improvisation. That's what this picture represents. I think it's kind of comical, funny, playful: a catsuit in combination with this gnome-style cone hat. The designer came from the former Soviet bloc, I believe from Russia. He had reinterpreted elements of a uniform and he kinda staged the whole thing as a call for peace. So you had the feeling that it was also about a higher goal. But honestly, it was primarily about a definitely very sexy catsuit and the combination with a remarkable cap, made of green wool felt...

Yes, that's how it was back then. It was the first years I was a freelance backstage photographer and we were having a good time. The seriousness of life seemed far away.”
