In addition to choreographies for ballet, theater and opera, Alan Barnes frequently collaborates with various international fashion houses such as Bernhard Willhelm, Costume National, Issey Miyake, Versace and Marithe & Francois Girbaud. The fashion shows of the two are unusually imaginative collaborations that transform the regular show events. Their stagings become media spectacles which they mix with contemporary dance elements. For his fashion clients, though, Alan Barnes is not just a creative choreographer. Often, he is also intimately involved in the preparations for the productions. Thus, for example, in the run-up to the event, he trains the models selected for the runways in order to provide his clients with the best possible choreographic result.
