Object of Desire - Sex, Fashion and the Female Gaze 

Symposium held at The National Museum of Scotland

 

Betony participated in a panel discussion moderated by Alice Pfeiffer (journalist Le Monde), artist Safia Bahmed-Schwartz and designer Resha Sharma (Fleet Ilya) to discuss how our attitudes to sex are made visible, literally, in how we choose to conceal, reveal or adorn our bodies with clothes and accessories. Unpicking the complicated relationship fashion has towards sensuality and sexuality it will interrogate the prejudices and politics of beauty, alongside the rising wave of female image-makers challenging the predominance of the male gaze in fashion, advertising and media.

"A vision in crimson, lilac and cream (hair, dress, and skin, respectively), Betony Vernon reigns on her dominion like a lethal Eve- a fiery, modern séductrice who has created her own take on paradise. The 19th-century boudoir looks like it came straight out of a book by Sacher-Masoch, complete with tied-up dolls and phallic statues. Lines of books remain hidden behind heavy curtains: in the boudoir, nothing can serve a purpose beyond that of pleasure." - Semaine Online

26th of January 2016
6 - 7 PM Open to Public

The long-awaited Noble Knots collection by Betony Vernon launches January 2016 in collaboration with Colette during Paris Haute Couture. Inspired by Shibari (the art of Japanese bondage) and crafted in Italy, Noble Knots makes the transition from behind-closed-doors and the prohibited to explicitly visible and celebrated. Powerful, bold and provocative, Betony continues her concept of modular pieces that have multiple functions.
