Como Fashion Quarter

Four fashion practitioners each transform a quarter of Como House in a new exhibition that explores the role of the stylist

Como Fashion Quarter is an immersive exhibition of style and design that unpacks the polish of fashion photography, exposing the invisible staging, production and process behind an image.

  • Kiri-Una Brito Meumann – artist

  • Thalea Michos-Vellis – fashion stylist

  • Marc Wasiak – art director / production designer
    Marc Wasiak has been working in fashion for over 20 years, with his depth of experience and extravagant production values he brings drama and vibrancy to the project.
