Burberry Show A/W 2019, London

For London Fashion week in February 2019 the Tate Modern tanks were occupied with two contrasting environments for Riccardo Tisci’s second Burberry show entitled ‘Tempest’.

The Silver tank was loosely arranged around a meandering runway, punctuated with large illuminated discs suspended from above. The perimeter of the tank was lined in a scaffolding structure onto which a choreographed dance troupe climbed at the show finale. The Gold tank was defined as a formal, structured space constructed in high gloss timber with steeply raked seating. A narrow linear runway formed the catwalk which was illuminated with warm light from a single rectangular lightbox above.
