Fashion is, in its purest form, a form of fantasy. While our everyday dress may require a certain element of practicality, the joy of dressing up is playing with the boundaries of reality, perhaps mining our subconscious desires to create an ethereal character, even if for one night only. It's precisely this fantasy which makes surrealism and fashion a natural pairing. The likes of Joan Miro and Salvador Dali dedicated themselves to capturing the uncapturable, those fleeting moments of the dreamworld which certain avant-garde designers also dare to delve into, with embellishment, print and illusory silhouettes.
