Vivienne Tam store, Soho



When I walked by the Vivienne Tam store in Soho last night, on my way to John Midgley and Eva Midgley's exibition/screening at ION Studio, I saw this ginger-haired mannequin. She looked like a real person, a determined shopped who was accidentally locked in after hours and was quite happily perusing the store on her own, her big handbag slung on her arm.

The light at left is from a floor-to-ceiling projection of models on a runway, with the footage being cast on a very skinny column. Makes the models' legs look tall as a building and narrow as a pipe.
