After the painted fabric was rearranged, it blossomed into dresses, coats or skirts that were inspired by 17th-century Dutch Golden Age artwork – the whole process was performed right in front of the audience. Moreover, there was a distinct contrast between the gilded frames and decorated fabric, but these two elements worked together to create a sense of drama and vibrancy. Just like the designers’ show notes said “Poetry becomes reality, morphing back into fantasy.”
