ZERO by Nanine Linning with costumes by Iris van Herpen
In the multidisciplinary ZERO by Nanine Linning dance, fashion and music come together. The fashion part is a contribution by Iris van Herpen, Dutch designer who just won the ANDAM Award in Paris. This was not the first time that Nanine and Iris are working together but the first time on a catwalk. Iris van Herpen designed costumes for 'Synthetic Twin' and 'The Endless Songs of Silence', still one of my all time favorite dance performances.
It is no secret that I am a fan of contemporary dance, ZERO made the opening the opening of the 21st edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam an inspiring experience. It is great to see that next to FASHIONCLASH Festival other fashion events are embracing 'dance' in their schedule.
The show is a multidisciplinary performance where dance, fashion and music come together.
The performance is realized in cooperation with Nanine Linning and her dance company, Jurlights, sound designer Salvador Broad and 4DSOUND. Through this unique collaboration the opportunity arose to use for the first time the worlds first and only 4D sound system during a fashion presentation.
