Király, Tamás, Dresses for the Dressater: Dressed to Thrill, 1988.
In 1988, Berlin became the cultural capital of Europe. For the occasion, the German fashion designer Claudia Skoda was asked to create a fashion show by inviting artist from different corners of Europe. Skoda invited Király, who was the only representative of the Eastern Bloc. His collection was strongly inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s costumes at the Triadic ballet in that he created his dresses using only circles, triangles, and squares from the perspective of design and only red and black colours separately from the perspective of colour.
In the end, he created 40 dresses, of which three have survived as part of his bequest.
