The theme of the John Elliott FW18 show was “Delirium” which was showcased through a series of distorting, reeded glass monolith extrusions which cast light and shadows up, down, and across the runway. The set design was initially inspired by the role of delirium in Lynchian films like Twin Peaks. 
Institute took the concept and disected the key elements of light, sound and lucid imagery to create the disorienting and dream-like experience amplified by a pulsing soundtrack by darkwave band Them Are Us Too.
