Triptych is a collection that draws from Hierononymus Bosch's infamous painting of the "Garden of Unearthly Delight" and the queer nightlife. It exposes a weird, wonderful world of deconstruction, maximalism and prints. I intended for each body to communicate a the different  three acts found in Bosche's painting they are disorder, chaos and hell. As well fusing the worlds of nightlife, disco, Club Kids and Leigh Bowery. It also utilises recycled kilts to form one of the looks. The use of deconstruction is used in the suiting, conflating ideas about womens and mens dressing. The high use of maximalism, old glamour and referencing Serge Lutens through my hero bodies. Across this body of work I intended for it show the grungy aspects of nightlife and how its pushed to its extremes.
