Designer and choreographer Amy Ollett creates “visual experiences” that straddle dance and fashion. Her creations are enveloping shells that separate and protect from the world, like cocoons for caterpillars ready to morph into butterflies and fly into the beauty around them.
Looking at her pieces, we forget innovation or avant-garde and enter a world that is beyond stereotypes, in which fabric and textures are the real protagonists. From the latters’ potential, integrated with movement, a visionary style is born. Ollett understands how much the body that puts a “soul” in fabric defines the intrinsic meaning of fashion, and pursues an aesthetic ideal in which no piece exists without the physical nature of its wearer – and vice versa.
