Congratulations to Rebecca Moses for a year of hard work in creating her amazing mannequins, extraordinary exhibition of work and one of a kind fashion! We had a blast at Rebecca Moses’ Imperfectly Perfect Mes Demsoilles debut at the Ralph Pucci Showroom in NYC. Spirits were high as the floor was filled with friends and guests mingling and admiring the fantastic collection!
“Mes Demoiselles: Imperfectly Perfect,” is a unique series of mannequins which debuted this week in an exhibition at Ralph Pucci. Through the exhibition Rebecca’s extraordinary world will come to life. The Mes Demoiselles will be dressed in custom clothing from the first Ralph Pucci fabric collection, surrounded by murals and paintings, all created by Moses.
We recently sat down and caught up with Rebecca to learn more about her upcoming show.
Can you tell us more about your creative process?
Color is fundamental, moods are exaggerated, and body language strong, and the attitudes are large. If I am illustrating space and interiors I like to create exaggerated, out of proportion personalities. Imperfection is always so captivating.
Tell us about Mes Demoiselles and your collaboration with Ralph Pucci.
I created 25 distinctive Mes Demoiselles to reflect today’s multi-cultural individualism and to redefine the standard of beauty influencing a new generation of consumers who are a reflection of this new world order.
You talk about “undefined beauty.” Can you tell us more about that?
The women I create personify “undefined beauty.” They have ever-changing self-defining personal glamour, and take cues from themselves, their tastes, and their their whims. Their expressive, unconventional made-up faces possess irregular features, an under-slung chin, long neck or articulated arms and hands, so-called “imperfections” that make them so uniquely beautiful. Each conveys a fearless personal style, eccentric and original, indicative of the power and beauty of their self-confidence.
How do you see beauty and art evolving in today’s fashion world?
Art, fashion, and retail have to reflect our changing world and society. People are blending. Stereotypes are broken. A new individualism has evolved, with fresh, personal visions of beauty. With my Mes Demoiselles mannequins, I want the customer to walk through a store and recognize herself in them— multi-ethnic, mutli-cultural, imperfect yet spectacular personas.
How has your artwork changed or developed over the years?
Yes, it has become more humorous and spirited. I feel very close to the characters I create. I enjoy being able to laugh at oneself. This is why I love maximizing each characters style and mannerisms.
Imperfectly Perfect is A MUST SEE and is on display at the Ralph Pucci Gallery at 44 W18th Street, New York, NY 10011.
