The French fashion designer and performance artist believes in fabricating full experiences of existence, and the costumes of Gwen van den Eijnde create unique characters for him to assume completely the moment he dons one of these outlandish outfits.

Each ensemble is exquisite and detailed; many are inspired by the court culture of the Renaissance and the exuberant style of Baroque and Mannerism. Incorporating extraordinary headpieces, Elizabethan collars and embellishments made of piano keys, toothpicks and anything else, the costumes of Gwen van den Eijnde transform the human silhouette.
