With fabrics and textures as her inspiration, Lisa Muscat Vitale blends together reality with a virtual world to create her latest collection, Virtuality. Lisa worked with photographer Robert Lobetta, an iconic hairstylist and artist himself, to create images that portrayed her virtual vision. With a subtle whimsical feel to them we are transported into Lisa’s world. Hear more about it from Lisa herself...
What was the inspiration behind Virtuality?
Virtuality conceptualized when I set eyes on a Facebook post by Fashion World, the image appeared real — a live model, physical garments and makeup — yet at the same time alluded to being hand drawn.
I was creatively and mentally stimulated. This made enabled the viewer to decide on its context, its reality. I knew from this point I wanted to offer a similar experience with this new creative collection.
Still fixated on this particular image, I began to evaluate the hair, drawn to its transparency. From here my thought process moved to fabrics, textures and the possibility of manipulating hair to appear textile.
Textiles - the canvas for so many shapes, silhouettes and styles — weaving and puckering, lace and crochet, the options are endless.
