This year, we were trapped.
Clubs were closed. So were the bars. Museums, boutiques, and offices. For the majority of a full year, any kind of fantasy we typically could create and cling to here in Berlin was taken from us, almost overnight. And then the borders closed, and we were caught inside our own heads even further, glancing at a world immediately around us that seemed to leave no room for fantasy.
Enter the creatives, namely the fashion designers, who gave us an opportunity to see deeper into their worlds and creative processes this year than they ever had before. Below, we pay homage to those opened the gates to other realities in an otherwise closed-off world, who reminded us of the important of dreaming, of imagination, and of fantasy. With their various visualizations, some artists gave us the opportunity to take a glimpse into other worlds that seemed mystical, from the past, or from a far ahead future. They remind us where our imaginations can take us, even if our bodies currently cannot.
