Nobles work cannot be pigeon-holed to just one specific style, his work is eclectic and unpredictable, ever-changing and an absolute thrill to see!
With Gaga herself being a huge fan, and many of her most talked about outfits having been created by Noble, he is one of the most hyped about designers on the scene at the moment. With his AW 2011 collection making its first appearance back in february, he instantly created a buzz with his unique approach. Instead of having models walk down a catwalk, he created somewhat of an installation in collaboration with other like-minded artists. 'Soft Death', displayed in the crypt of St Martin in the Fields saw uncomfortable models wearing selected pieces, whilst others where simply (yet effectively) displayed on mannequins. Alongside the anatomy inspired pieces, their was an art installation courtesy of artist Anna Bruder, consisting of trails of black rubber piping on the floor, resembling strewn intestines.
The collection itself is exquisite. Nobles ability to create stunning gowns, with grotesque undertones is brilliant...Loving the 'Gore-Couture'!
From what I've seen the whole show was spectacular, I love it when designers show their work in new and provocative ways...Especially when It's a collaborative project, with other artists who specialise in other disciplines of art!
Below are some shots from collection, as well as Gaga herself wearing some of his other pieces.
