Moshino marionette runway show

Designers are getting more creative in finding ways to host runway shows around social distancing guidelines in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic including the use of puppets. That’s right a puppet runway show because everyone loves puppets including the Moschino creative director, Jeremy Scott.

Scott is known for his over-the-top runway shows for Moschino but this runway production of puppets is so realistic for a unique fashion event that can be enjoyed by all. Scott worked closely with the literal puppet masters at Jim Henson creations to create a realistic display for the Spring-Summer 2021 collection including models and front-row celebrities.

The marionette style puppets created a refined esthetic for all the puppets including models and front-row fashion icons. Every runway show is complete with an audience of celebrity fashion icons and Scott didn’t compromise on any details.

The Jim Henson Team created realistic marionette versions of the Vogue US editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and her UK counterpart Edward Enninful. Every puppet was a work of art incorporating every detail including Anna’s iconic wardrobe with her black sunglasses and bob hairstyle.

The marionettes provided a scaled-down canvas for the doll-sized designs that are perfectly to scale. The end of the show also included a marionette version of Scott himself walking with the models in true runway tradition.

Scott disclosed that this marionette runway project with Jim Henson was fun, he enjoys working closely with others in the fashion industry and the energy of a live audience.
