An inclusive, integrated event and creative celebration, in which the crowd were as much a part of the show as the performers. Ditching the runway in favour of a more casual fashion presentation integrated with art and music, this Johny Dar Berlin Fashion Week event saw models, DJs and influencers gather to party at the glamorous Provocateur Berlin;
Photography featuring Dar’s acclaimed body art series ‘Tuuli by Dar’ adorned the walls of Provocateur’s event venue ‘La Cave’, between mannequins sporting styles from the glitzy yet wearable collection. Photographed by Rankin, the unique body art images feature model and actress Tuuli Shipster, who was hand-painted by Johny Dar in 12 seamless second-skin designs, for a limited edition calendar that involved an extraordinary 150 hours of painting.
These captivating images were the backdrop for the ‘Dardelica’ show, which featured music created by Dar himself, and produced and performed as a DJ set by DJ Dardelica aka Dan Vinci. A fusion of organic and electronic sound, tribal beats, mesmeric melodies and Johny Dar’s intergalactic alien-rap were presented as an exclusive preview of the unique, unprecedented and unforgettable sonic phenomenon that is Dardelica.
Until next time Berlin!
