Jack Irving’s wearable art carries a texture and movement that take the human body to otherworldly places. In his latest “live installations,” whether on the runway or at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, his works appear to burst from their models. These settings also show how his work functions in both broad daylight and the sets he designs himself.

“Jack Irving creates collections of wearable art and installations with a passion for science and theatrics combined,” the museum says. “… Jack Irving’s mission is to engulf the world in a fantastical spectacle, incorporating all elements of theatricality with a love for colliding technology with live performance. His live installation references the natural and supernatural world.”
