We are delighted to announce that Lascivious will be working with the illustrious conservation charity, the Elephant Family on their latest, most magnificent project, The Animal Ball, to be held at a magical London location on Tuesday 9th July 2013.The brand were tasked to create a bespoke pair of masks that reflect our interpretation of an endangered animal - to be gifted to guests paying to attend the nights full festivities, providing the ultimate in conservation chic.
Lascivious Director, Chloe Hamblen says, "We wanted the masks to contain an abstract element, and a nod to extinction itself. Where beautiful, iconic creatures are consigned to history books, leaving only pictures, skins, teeth and make-believe. Such is the reality without urgent intervention. We chose to create a pair of dragon masks - potent, mythical creatures; fitting for a grand ball, but with a very real counterpart in the endangered Kimodo dragon."
The masks were on display in London’s Sotheby’s Auction House alongside designs from Manolo Blahnik, Mario Testino, Matthew Williamson, Missoni, Lulu Guiness, Philip Treacy and Christian Lacroix to name a few. The brand were thrilled to contribute towards such an amazing cause.
