Being Born Again Couture features 10 fashion designers including Akira Isogawa, Marnie Skillings and Dhini Pararajasingham collaborating with 10 artists including Lindy Lee, Tracey Moffat, Pat Brassington and Christopher Horder to produce one-off garments. Christopher Horder and Sydney based designer, Michael Le Sordo, have worked closely for several months using a digital print of Horder's 2009 painting, The Bird Has Flown, to create a structured silk minidress incorporating sheer panels and plastic, perspex and metal embellishments. Being Born Again Couture will launch its showcase of work at the National Art School on Thursday 22 April 2010.
