For #ThrowbackThursday, with the recent death of the brilliant H. R. Giger, here’s Malgorzata Dudek‘s SS/12 collection ‘Giger’s Goddess’.  As an homage to the late genius, with his prior approval, Dudek transferred his cultural influence onto fabric.  

Although a lot of Giger’s imagery can be perceived as dark + macabre, plenty of beauty still manages to break through.  Dudek approached this ‘hidden’ beauty with feminine elements throughout her collection including ruffles, petal hemmed layers + corseted, as well as long body con looks.image

Of the many Giger prints, the Giger ‘Li’ print was seen on an elegant skin-tight gown, while the 3-D Giger baby heads from ‘Landscape XVIII’ adorned the back+ train of a hauntingly beautiful black, skin-tight gown.

Laser-cut leather elements, inspired by H.R. Giger’s airbrushing were seen throughout the collection.  Metal sunglasses by designer Slav Nowosad, inspired by Giger’s ‘Birth Machine’, accessorized part of the collection. 

As to why Giger, Dudek explained, ‘My desire with this collection is to honor H.R. Giger, pay him tribute, + show how his influence resonates in the world of fashion.  When I started sketching this collection + planning the fabrics, I couldn’t see it complete without elements of H.R. Giger’s artwork.  And what better way for me, as a designer, to honor a man who’s Biomechanical vision has massively influenced architecture, film, music, tattoo art, fashion + industrial design.’
