One of my favorite FASHION SCOUT creatives during this LFW September 2020 is Tighe-Mearns-Smith. Their work is not aimed at a specific audience, they make art for everybody. It is cardinal to use art as a tool for liberation and maintain the element of deliverance. This liberation should be uplifting for the planet. This is of great importance to Tighe-Mearns-Smith and in turn they employ unwanted goods and second hand materials as a basis for their fashion and traditional art work. Appropriating unwanted products and wasted materials enables art to work as a vessel for positive environmental impact.
‘Art is dead, we have killed it and it is our duty to redeem it. Welcome to the era of redemption.’
This season Tighe-Mearns-Smith invite you to climb through the stages of the Magnum Opus and realise the inner King and Queen that reside in the infinite chaos of your mind.
