Prada Men’s and Women’s Fall / Winter 2016 Fashion Show

The division between the role of the audience and actor is blurring: all have become players in the
same secular ceremony of the fashion show. 
No longer relegated to passive observer, the spectator is now an active participant in the events 
unfolding in front of them. 
The assemblage of recorded impressions and digital reactions inserts itself into the once autonomous 
narrative of the fashion show. 
The statement of the collective spreads. The mass of fragmented instant data is uploaded and 
critiqued by a multitude of voices.
This consumption of images is like a public trial, a contemporary transposition of the Auto-da-fé [(a) ritual of public penance of condemned heretics. (b) title of the English edition of the novel by Elias Canetti, Nobel for Literature in 1981 and author of Crowds and Power (1960).]

For the 2016 Fall Winter Prada show, AMO takes inspiration from the traditional public stages and 
places of civic ceremonies. 
Placed around the periphery of the room, a system of balconies and tribunes defines the central 
space. Similar, yet different they create an imbalanced symmetry (3). A raised viewing platform is 
inserted into the middle of the room, dominating the catwalk. 
This assemblage of structures breaks through the building, expanding into the surrounding streets 
and urban domain. A new entrance, marked by a ceremonial gateway, creates an oneiric (4) passage 
from street to show. 
Guests gather on the balconies, tribunes and central platform in crowds according to a series of 
spatial hierarchies. No longer bystanders, they become active participants in the ritual unfolding 
around them. 

The OSB wood cladding counters the simplicity of the structures. An irregular pattern of red and dark  patches covers the surface, while dramatic lighting enhances its uneven texture. The dark and enigmatic chiaroscuro atmosphere is enhanced by a theatrical use of lights.
