Agoraphobia is Rudi Williams’ response to Octavius La Rosa’s private collection of runway COMME des GARÇONS. This collaboration between Melbourne based artist Rudi Williams and fashion and textiles display specialist Annette Soumilas is a portrait of Octavius La Rosa through the documentation of his collection.
A 19 card publication set contained in a 25cm x 20cm blind embossed folder. The nineteen photographs document twenty-two COMME des GARÇONS runway garments dated from 2012 – 2018.
The photographs were created using a 5 x 4 large format film camera, each scenario a studied, in-camera response to Rei Kawakubo's designs and concepts, the engineering of the garments, and the psychological space the garments inhabit for the wearer.
