The exhibit explores the evolution of the designers creative process and includes clothing as well as life sized "architectural" fashion drawings, dance costume sketches, and video clips of fashion shows and dance performances. Shamask women's wear collections and contemporary designs are known for their clean lines and focus on cut, construction, color and the finest of textiles, some of which are being presented for the first time. Along with collaborating with fellow artist and choreographers, Shamask's collections were also inspired by architecture as well as traditional Japanese clothing and crafts including origami.
