Project Red is a live catwalk show taking place in (and responding to) the Out of The Ordinary exhibition in the Bank Gallery.

It will feature work from The Cass BA (Hons) Fashion degree, and has organised in collaboration with Fashion Marketing students at The Guildhall Faculty of Business and Law. 

The Brief

Red is one of the two colours in the 'Taeguk', the shape at the centre of the flag of South Korea, representing positive cosmic forces.

Red is the colour at the end of the visible spectrum next to orange and at the opposite end from violet. The wavelength of red light is approximately 620–740 mm on the electromagnetic spectrum.

Red is the colour of blood, and because of this it has historically been associated with sacrifice, danger and courage. Modern surveys in the United States and Europe, show red is the colour most commonly associated with heat, activity, passion, sexuality, anger, love, and joy. In China and many other Asian cultures, it is the colour of happiness.

Since the French Revolution, the red flag has been the symbolic colour of revolution, and in the later ninteenth and twentieth century, it was the symbolic colour of socialism and communism.

Cass fashion students will respond and produce 10 'Red Looks' inspired by the colour red and the architecture in the Out Of The Ordinary exhibition in their first making project, for their first live catwalk event.

Project Red concludes The Cass Korean Mini Festival, a series of celebratory events accompanying the Out Of The Ordinary exhibition.
