Fairy-God, Fashion-Mother is a series of paper collages by artist Hormazd Narielwalla inspired by the cult fashion curator Diane Pernet. No mere follower of fashion she remains impossible to pigeonhole. In response the collages combine paper shapes sourced from three paradoxically eclectic historical sources; reproductions of 1960s American paper dresses, original tailoring pattern drafts from a Victorian cutting book and original Savile Row cutting patterns discarded after the death of customers. The iconic fashionista appears resplendent from the remnants of disposable dresses, antique patterns for clothes that were never made, and patterns for men whose meticulous measurements are made redundant by death. The series followed a commission for two large scale works by ATOPOS cvc for the RRRIPP Paper Fashion touring exhibition and was first exhibited in Athens, Greece at 4 Fashionshake III by Ozon Magazine.

The works were exhibited in Athens and then a solo show at the Modern Pantry, London. Harvey Nichols exhibited 7 works in their exclusive members area thereafter.
