From the architect. Building Fashion at HL23 along with PIN-UP design magazine recently unveiled their final installation in celebration of cutting edge design in New York City. Avant-garde newcomer Siki Im displays the clothing embedded beneath a layer of foam, ‘reinforcing the dichotomy of two environments – public and private, visible and invisible’.  This stand-alone retail installation is the first of its kind.
