The event launches Bruce Asbestos' very first clothing collection.
 
Based on Hansel & Gretel, a traditional folk story made popular by the Brothers Grimm the event will showcase new outrageous outfits, complicated characters and beautiful ready-to-wear clothes. The performative event will focus on the transformative nature of things in the story; houses can be made of food, birds can be used as boats and children can become murderers.

Bruce Asbestos uses​ digital and social media, popular culture, marketing and small-scale production to make artwork. An active internet presence is​ at the core of his practice: his online TV show, The Social Media Takeaway, use​s​ the quick-fix, low-brow, throw-away nature of YouTube as a platform to produce artworks and performances.
