Designers’ Day 2017
WOW to me is so exciting because I can unleash everything that I can imagine in my mind We saw that the show was coming to the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle Fashion and costumes being recognized as art? That’s amazing. We’ve been saying this for years and this sounds like the show for us This kind of show we didn’t imagine before we come here This is a great place to exhibit your work on a world stage and for each of those designers to know That they are actually inspiring these 60,000 people that come to view their garments. For us at Cirque du Soleil We can find a big opportunity of designer, young designer, who’s creating amazing costume It really is a pleasure for me to make your garments come to life. It was great fun today We met a lot of the other designers and got to play around with some interesting new materials together. It brings not just designers and fun ideas together There’s so much craftsmanship and technology that come together, and that’s where inspiration meets the artisan. It was especially good to meet the costume department And the fun they have and the potential nightmares that we give them! Today has been amazing There’s a lot of cultural exchange which is happening There’s a lot of information which we gathered from the workshops Everything has been delightful The models transform the garment into a performance piece on stage I love to see the designers sitting in the audience, the look on their face when they see their garment come out You get tears, you get shrieks, you get disbelief. It was one of the most emotional moments of my life I was weeping because the last time I dealt with it was in my living room And now suddenly, it’s on this massive stage in front of all these people It’s an otherworldly experience My model was absolutely fantastic I’m so happy That performance she gives, she brings the costume really, really alive, very dynamic With a perfect understanding of the meaning We can’t wait to tell all of our friends back at home about this event, about New Zealand in general! If you can dream it I reckon you’re halfway there You you never know unless you try… just go for it!
