Violet Chachki Closes Moschino’s Fall 2018 Menswear Fashion Show _________________________________________
This weekend in Milan, RPDR winner Violet Chachki closed out Moschino’s FW18 menswear show, helping Jeremy Scott take fetish couture to a new extreme. Gimp masks, devil horns, leather and latex adorned the models who strutted down the catwalk.
Chachki was a perfect fit to close a show that pushed the boundaries of contemporary, high-fashion menswear. The queen walked alongside agender model Oslo Grace in a show that also featured trans model Teddy Quinlivan and Instagram thirst trap August Gonet.
“Her collages, with the help of the title, often include a teasing, visual narrative, as if they’re a still frame of a surreal movie. The viewers are invited to make up the movie’s plot in their mind”

she is; Amongst a lot, …a filmmaker, illustrator, and a modern vintage collage artist.
“It’s important for me to “say” something with my artwork, so for the vast majority of my work there’s a meaning behind them. I usually do this via presenting a “narrative” scene in my collages, like there’s something bigger going on than what’s merely depicted. Sometimes the scene is witty or sarcastic, some times it’s horrific with a sense of danger or urgency, some times it’s chill. I leave it to the viewer’s imagination to fill-in the blanks of the story plot”.
– Eugenia Loli
Question: What are your influences?
“I got into collage because I loved Julien Pacaud’s illustrations, but it was Kieron “Cur3es” Cropper who became my main influence. The guy’s a genius. Bryan “Glass Planet” Olson and David Delruelle are also influences of mine. From the older artists, I’d have to say, Magritte. However, I collage on many different styles: from “pop” to dada, and from modern illustrations to traditional surrealism. I don’t believe that artists should “find their style”. That’s artistic death. If I have a style, it’s probably some “meta” aspect of it (e.g. the sarcasm that I usually employ in my collages), rather than something visual”.
