Set designer Gary Card’s Nicer Tuesdays talk took the audience on a quick tour of his eclectic career. Starting by showing us his “more successful projects to begin with — so you know I’m legit,” into his more “fashionable, young, collaborative situations,” in particular his work with designer Charles Jeffrey.
Over the brilliant mishmash of projects Gary has worked on — from Comme des Garcon and Liberty to working with Tim Walker — cardboard is the material he always returns to. Sharing whole set designs made of the stuff as well as magazine covers sporting the brown material with Nick Knight and Dinos Chapman and in-store installations for Cos.
Affable and modest, the whirlwind tour of Gary’s creative ventures showed the audience the good and the mad, disasters at fashion weeks to collaborative, joyful projects all leading to his work with Charles Jeffrey’s label Loverboy, a continuously growing and equally exciting collaboration voicing their shared creative vision.
