Peter George d'Angelino Tap:Fashionshow PGXXX Thaumazoo
Me and my friend Cheryl went to the fashion show Thaumazoo, by designer Peter George
d’Angelino Tap. The exhibition was in Arminius, Rotterdam (A Jugendstil
Church, now usedfor performances and exhibitions)Arminius invited the designer to show his creations in the building.We saw the performance September 10
th
, 2011 in the early afternoon.A criticism:

Soul d’Angelino
 
Tap’s career spans a
periodof twenty five years. In these years he has surpassed the boundaries usually known to fashiondesigners. His designs found their way to the world of theater, opera and ballet.His source of inspiration is the arts - be it poetry, music or the figurative arts.
 
Shape:
The exhibition space wasn’t meant for shows in the first place. It was a church. It is a
verypretty cathedral in Austrian Art Nouveau style. The Exhibition includes fashion works whichwere based on art works by (famous) artists. These were exhibited as well.
The artworks were placed randomly trough over the cathedral, in “secret corners” so not
actually to make people see in immediately. You had to seek a little, walk, find a way.The costumes were placed on mannequins. The artworks were placed on pillars.There barely was any structure nor strategy in the placement.
There wasn’t a very logical route either. There were all different kinds of places and most of 
the costumes were hidden behind plants or wardrobes or fences.
 
 Meaning:
The exhibition wasn’t about anything particular. It
were costumes based on artworks. The title isThaumazoo is Greek for admiration orastonishment. The exhibition was also verystunning so the title matches well.The reason for the arrangement is not very clear to
me. I don’t know why someone would make such a
mess out of an exhibition. It did not look veryprofessional to be honest.
Maybe this has to do with the “marvelous” idea butI think it is somewhat…I don’t know how to put it,
unorganized.
I don’
t even know if things were based on theme, I
don’t think so. It was just random. And all put in
corners as if it was not meant to be seen.For some information boards were placed,including sketches of the design. Over this sketchinformation about the artwork it was based on:The information was not hard to understand. It wasplaced close by the costume though in one space itwas quite camouflaged and we did notsee it at first.
