HOUSE OF CANNON

Daydreaming Detroit

Resort 2017

MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION FESTIVAL SYDNEY
FRIDAY 20 MAY @11AM, THE THEATRE, CARRIAGEWORKS

Sydney, Australia (10 May 2016) - Sydney based designer Annie Cannon-Brookes of House of Cannon will showcase her Resort 2017 Collection, entitled Daydreaming Detroit, at MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION FESTIVAL SYDNEY.

This season, HOUSE OF CANNON takes a drive to the Motor City of Detroit. Inspired by the rebirth of a city crushed by the US automobile industry moving offshore, Daydreaming Detroit highlights the city’s fascinating boom to bust history and rebirth–played out on race-worthy silhouettes and sporty everyday staples through the use of bold colours, unexpected combinations and vivid, digitally-printed fabrics.

Featuring collaborations with two extraordinary artists–David T Waller of the United Kingdom and Wiktor Franco of Poland–House of Cannon shapes their striking imagery into quirky prints, creating truly wearable art.

Multi-way pieces are alive with colour as rows of miniature cars depict the city’s vibrancy, whilst a desaturated greyscale palette alludes to the “post-apocalyptic” scene that was to follow. Delicate dandelions floating across billowy maxi dresses hold the promise of a city rebuilding.

Daydreaming Detroit will also mark the debut of House of Cannon’s first capsule Menswear collection, featuring jackets, shirt and shorts in House of Cannon’s signature digital prints.

As the talent behind House of Cannon’s unmistakable silhouettes, bold colours and graphic prints, Daydreaming Detroit is Annie Cannon-Brooks’ debut solo show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, following her showcase in the 2015 Gen Art: Fresh Faces in Fashion show at New York Fashion Week.
