MAISON the FAUX Queers LA Fashion Week With “Humanwear”

Renowned creative-studio-posing-as-grand-couture-fashion-house MAISON the FAUX presented their latest in LA over the weekend with a panic-inducing show featuring queer models galore (Ryon, Tzef Montana, Love Bailey) and a harrowing and glam live cover of Sia’s “Chandelier” by singer Dorian Wood.

The house (lovingly referred to as “The Fictional House”) aspires to be an affectionate reaction to oft-ridiculous world of fashion, and the show served as a big faux wink directed at an audience savvy enough to look beyond typically narrow-minded runway rules. The Fictional House, a rough translation of MAISON the FAUX, is rooted in a great sense of humour and self-mockery, combined with a deep love of fashion. MAISON the FAUX represents a new outlook on masculinity and femininity creating “Humanwear.”

“It’s our first time showing in LA, it has fascinated us for a very long time,” say head designers Joris Suk and Tessa de Boer. “LA is all about facades, creating alter egos, fame and egos; something that intrigues and triggers us. LA symbolizes that you can be or become anyone you want but at the same time also demands you to.”

“‘The PREMIERE’ is all about these contradictions and is a quest to search meaning in things that seem absolutely meaningless,” they continue. “We try to understand how everything and everyone can be so completely two-faced.”

Noteworthy celebs in attendance included musician FKA Twigs and weave god Tokyo Stylez.
