BEAUTY FULL... we position the unbelievably complex beauty of fashion and the fabrics it is made from. Textiles and styles reveal a lot of technique and know-how as well as an artistic extravaganza in the haute-couture manner. What's most exciting is that all this is realized sotto voce. It is not about showing off. It's all about joy, finesse and intelligent realization. A game between high-tech and naturalness, approach and distance, anonymity and decoration offers so much space for staging, art, and surprise.
