Having near-single-handedly shifted global connotations of “Made in China” with her reportage on the country’s emerging, burgeoning designers, Irish-born Gemma A. Williams has turned her talents to a thoroughly new creative venture: opera.

Working alongside composer Alastair White has produced “WEAR”, a sci-fi infused fashion presentation with intriguing cross-references – “Waiting for Godot meets Lulu via fashion week for the post-truth era.”

Staged in the forward-thinking surrounds of London’s Tête à Tête Theatre, whose philosophy is to pioneer “the future of opera”, WEAR’s apocalyptic setting and usage of time travel couldn’t have found a more fitting home.

The couture-standard cherry-on-top, however, arrives in the form of Derek Lawlor – a design collaborator and long-time friend of Williams, who reinvigorates his intricate MA collection for the performance.

Pencil in the 3rd of August: WEAR graces the stage for one night only.
