To make a contribution to the MQ Summer of Fashion digital artists Station Rose go back in time, dive into their archives and show videoworks from their early fashion projects.
The artists started to make fashion performances in 1983, initiating Vienna´s fashion movement, labeled "U-mode" later. Elisa Rose was a student at Karl Lagerfeld´s class at Die Angewandte, and Gary Danner played live music with his band "Die Nervoesen Voegel". They worked in this mixed form of art, including performance, music, video and fashion mainly in the 80-ies. Nevertheless fashion is still part of their art today.

Elisa Rose, at that time a student of Karl Lagerfeld at the University of Applied Art in Vienna, created the couture, Danner’s band Die nervösen Vögel played live during the defilee. Most of the creations were hand-painted, the jewellery was hand-made. The live band used typical post-punk instrumentation (bass/Alfred Volgger, guitar/Gary Danner, drums/Martin Wich), as well as tape loops, and a fourth band member/Thomas Szabolcs experimented live at the mixing desk.
This performance was the start of the ongoing cooperation between the duo Elisa Rose and Gary Danner, which resulted in the founding of Station Rose in 1988.
A videoclip has been postproduced after the performance by Elisa Rose & Gary Danner at the University of Applied Arts in 1983.
