Can we truly live without the prospect of death?
Theme of the month : The Fantasy
One year has elapsed. One full orbit around our star. We have come full circle and in death will find new life. In our February production ORGASTIC, the ultimate chapter of a yearlong story of fashion and philosophy, we seek the answers to many questions. Why do we strive to live? To create? To care? What drives us forward in our moribund journeys? Is it love? Or is it sex? Perhaps they are the same thing. Inspired by the French expression La Petite Mort (The Small Death) — synonymous with orgasm — we set out to evoke the idea of life from death. After all, it is through orgasm — La Petite Mort — that new life is created.
