Gagosian Gallery Transforms into Runway for Damien Hirst & Warhol Factory X Collab with Levi’s

September 10th, 2007

NYMag.com posted a video yesterday highlighting the runway show for Damien Hirst & Warhol Factory X’s collaborations with Levi’s. Hirst created spin art pieces specially for the show, designs that were also featured on his denim.

According to the interview with Adrian Nyman, designer for Warhol Factory X, the collaboration between Levi’s and Warhol Factory had been set up previously. When Hirst saw a few of the pieces, he became interested by the work Nyman had done for Barney’s and wanted to participate.

Celebs such as Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen were in attendance, as well as director Vincent Gallo and Fischerspooner singer Casey Spooner, who gushed over Hirst’s spin art jeans.
