Fashion in Motion: Tristan Webber

April 2000

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Motivated by the chemical formula for adrenaline, Tristan Webber's collection mimics the body's changing skin patterns which are the result of fright, fight and flight. Cut in signature Webber style - immaculate tailoring - from fine wool, silks, mohair, cashmere, neoprene, shearlings and leathers, seaming and embroidery details trace the paths of adrenaline coursing through the body.

Colours range from snow white, lime, electric blue to grass green and fresh blood red. Fright is represented by delicate, wafting shapes in bleached out colours - whites, pale oranges - fashioned into asymmetric minis (silks) and razor slash-pattern coats and dresses (cashmere). Turning to fight, the colours become aggressive - white leather is patterned with red and white beaded adrenaline flushed muscle groups, circular leather skirts have freshly drawn bloody scratches swirling over them and a red shearling coat is pure aggression. For flight, structured sportswear is the answer - body-hugging leather jackets and leather mesh running pants - some with glow in the dark highlights.
