Timothy James Andrews took inspiration from some incredibly unlikely places for his Fall/Winter 2009 collection.

Inspired by Transformers, Tetris, Aztec, and Apocolypto, the looks are decidedly haphazard and wild. The Tetris look comes complete with a giant Tetris-colored hat.

While the combination of inspiration seems unconnected and random, when it is all put together, it creates a great futuristic look.

Implications - The rise of geek culture has pervaded into nearly every industry, including high fashion. Cutting-edge fashion designers are integrating elements from classic video games, 80s cult films and science fiction into their seasonal collections and magazine photo shoots, updating this iconography with avant-garde styling and futuristic aesthetics to resonate with a cultured audience.
