Fashion has no gender – L’Alcibiade

Monday, 30 September 2019, Paris, France – Geoffrey B. Small SS2020 

In a very intellectual show that touched the public’s heart, Geoffrey B. Small presented L’Alcibiade, the first live-opera / defile on a Saturday night during Paris Fashion Week with a world premiere performance of a 1680 undiscovered masterpiece written in Venice by Marc’ Antonio Ziani.

The opera was researched and directed by Brad C. Sisk with virtuoso singing performances by Melissa Purnell, Angelique Georgiou and Enrico Totola as part of the designer’s Spring/Summer 2020 women’s collection presentation which addressed gender issues, women’s rights, misogyny and war around Ziani’s symbolic story of gender aesthetic, power, and ambition spanning 2500 years.

Geoffrey B. Small is a reclusive American avant-garde designer who lives and works in Italy and has shown his collections in Paris since 1993. He is a pioneer of the sustainable design movement and a leader in extreme handmade clothing.
