Fashion designer Mary Katrantzou has teamed with artist Pablo Bronstein to design the costumes for " Sketches for Regency Living," a groundbreaking exhibition held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).

Inspired by London's Regency history, Pablo Bronstein uses a wide range of media to explore his interest in architecture from performance and drawing to installation and sculpture. His work penetrates every area of the ICA. Throughout Sketches for Regency Living existing architecture is embellished with forms that reference the Regency period and incorporate various decorative schemes.

The exhibition includes a retrospective program of Bronstein's dance works; newly choreographed performances with performers' costumes designed by Mary Katrantzou. The fashion designer, who is known for her bold prints and strong silhouettes, created two looks for the exhibition -- for both the morning and evening performances.
