Dancers Stephanie McMann and Marso Riviere are featured in these images wearing a single elastic costume, which ensures the dancers remain as one cohesive unit. Cypriot fashion designer Hussein Chalayan created the elastic costume, which allows the dancers to move freely and create unique abstract shapes with their bodies using one piece of clothing.

As part of a creative launch for Hussein Chalayan's Autumn and Winter fashion line, these dancers created a performance for the line's release at the Sadler's Wells theater. The unique performance was created to showcase the new collection in an interesting and inspiring form of art.

This incredibly stretchy costume features large loops in the fabric, which allows the dancers to use the entire stage to create shapes. Each shape focuses on the dual effort of the dancers and how working together can create a singular beautiful presentation.
