Art Comes First – The DJ Project
Inspiration clearly flows abundantly, when it comes to this Artistic Creative Family. Fresh from their acclaimed “The Coal Project” which impressed not only at Pitti Uomo 83 but around the fashion world, the Art Comes First collective were at it again. The ACF revolving collective comprised of Shaka Maidoh, Sam Lambert (ACF), Matteo Gioli (Super Duper Hats) and Liam Maher (Denham) joined forces to produce something wonderful.
This season “The DJ Project –The DJ Technique Applied to Menswear” again showed the importance of Allowing Creative Freedom within the fashion world. Inspired by various talented musical artists the ACF team spent each day sampling, cutting, remixing and sewing.
Musical pioneers represented by vintage pieces were delicately deconstructed and mixed with modern day innovators with the deft touch of a skilled DJ. Just like any master of his craft that knows his crowd, these gentlemen kept the throng captivated, sampling and mixing without missing a beat.
The final result was a presentation of Amazing Creative Fusion showcasing the various menswear items that had been constructed with superior skill, right before our very eyes by these inspired craftsmen.
