Generally, the concept of fashion conjures up images of elegance and grandeur. Take Paris Fashion Week for instance, where shows are held anywhere from the internationally renowned Louvre museum to the grandiose and decadent Hôtel de Ville de Paris. While it is, admittedly, an extreme example, it serves to illustrate the heights that the fashion industry will reach in order to maintain an elite image and appeal. It makes viewers all the more curious, then, when a designer opts to craft a show in the complete opposite direction, and this is the case with Nicholas Daley’s A/W 2019 collection show, “Black Ark.”
