”Tailors of the world: Funeral fashion show” is a fashion-theater-music spectacle. The performance shows how fashion and politics are just two sides of the same coin: power. Fashion is in a power. Fashion is a corset of the society. Those who have power, they stitch it, we tighten it ourselfs, because we want to belong. Dress it is a tool for wealth, position and power. To be different from others or to prove your loyalty. With the dress you rise above the others, determining your position. Tailors of the world are historical figures, masters of their images, propaganda masters, who due to their carefully designed out-looks overcome the image of death. And therefore survived until today.”
