About Hormazd Narielwalla:

Hormazd Narielwalla's (1979) practice began in the workrooms of the tailoring firm Dege & Skinner in London’s Savile Row, with an artist’s book,Dead Man’s Patterns (2008), which reflects on the bespoke suit patterns of deceased customers. Narielwalla has worked with patterns from many sources, including 1970s luxury lingerie (Lady Gardens), antique magazine inserts (Le Petit Echo de la Mode), uniforms from the British Raj (forCOLLECT 13), and a 1920s tailoring manual (Hungarian Peacocks, 2013). These artworks propose a new interpretation of tailoring patterns as interesting abstracted drawings of the human form. Freed from function they are drawings ahead of their time, anthropomorphic in origin and beautifully abstract in isolation.

A selection of 8 works by the artist will go on display in the Fashion Museum from 24 October 2015 until 3 January 2016 for the public to enjoy during normal opening hours.
