Unwearable creations flicker across screens and materialize on runways. Avant-garde fashion fuses with high technology. Impossible creations cloak walking dreams. Post-human silhouettes reconstruct the meaning of clothing and speculate on the future of human identity.

Otherworldly exposes the provocative images created by a new breed of designers, stylists, and photographers. Unbound by the old rules, they are reinventing fashion using technology from the edge of science fiction, materials that were once un-thinkable, and imaginations unfettered by the expectations of the past.

This expressive visual showcase features groundbreaking experiments by emerging talents and established designers like Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela, Lucy McRae, Peter Popps, Iris van Herpen, and others, refracted through the lens of inspired photography.
