Coral Short recreates the finery of the flâneur with a roving street intervention. This mysterious group resists the dreary world within each slow, fanciful step they take. These fantastical creates leisurely stroll down the streets, their eyes drinking in everything around them, transforming into beautiful vignettes, dripping with lace and velvet. Together they create a new visual language with their high dandy fashion, becoming a certain celebration, a unifying symbol in defiance of the conservative powers that be. The flâneurs and flâneuses are fascinated by all around them, as well as being a source of fascination for the public
