POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE

Never let it be said that Prophetik’s Jeff Garner doesn’t know how to make an entrance. At the Vauxhall Fashion Scout runway at London Fashion Week on Saturday, Garner opened his show with an orchestra that featured acclaimed violinist Analiza Ching.

For Autumn/Winter 2011, Garner used 100-year-old quilts handed down from his great-grandmother Lola.

Led by music by award-winning British conductor and composer Benjamin Ellin, we found ourselves transported to the court of King Louis XV, a time in 18th century France when “art became frivolous, a slave to consumers, [and] diseased of romantic snobbery,” Garner says. “The season exudes the freedom from the pretense of being what we would become, fleeing from egotism into the wonderment of an artist.”

Prophetik’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection is a family affair. In addition to naturally dyed, sustainable fabrics—including peace silk and a new kind of “cactus silk” made from the agave plant—Garner used 100-year-old quilts handed down from his great-grandmother Lola.
