Runway show featuring giant rubber bubbles that transform into dresses and skirts

“I was inspired by my own early childhood memories. I wanted to recreate the fogginess and the ‘mist’ of the memories themselves,” Tjærandsen tells Vogue. “The inflated bubbles are about being able to wear an unclear memory. When the bubble emerges onto the catwalk, it’s the dream. The deflation of the bubble visualises the moment when we realise we have a consciousness.”


The process of creating the dresses has been one of self-experimentation. “I’ve tested all the bubbles on myself for health and safety reasons,” he says. “There’s been three occasions when I’ve been inside and it’s burst, which is like a very big balloon popping.”
