Artistic Director – Rebecca Rutter
Acclaimed multi-disciplinary artist Rebecca Rutter, founded her alternative fashion and event company Fizzy Fingers in Melbourne, Australia in 2008. Fizzy Fingers blur the lines between costume, fashion, sculpture and textile art, creating a distinctive signature style that is all their own.
Inspired by epic dreamscapes and nightmarish creatures, clandestine ritual and elaborate ceremony, and an insatiable appetite for global travel, Fizzy Fingers create surreal and psychedelic one-off fashion-costume pieces.
On screen, Fizzy Fingers designs are featured in the second season of Luxury Comedy by Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh); and their pieces are worn by New Zealand singer/actor Kimbra in the clip for her song ‘90’s Music’ from the hit album The Golden Echo.
UK singer/actor Paloma Faith has worn Fizzy Fingers at Glastonbury Festival; and Canadian electronic musician and performance artist Peaches was dressed by Fizzy Fingers for YO! Sissy music festival, Berlin, and has appeared in German Rolling Stone magazine in a handmade Fizzy Fingers outfit.
Fizzy Fingers also curate unique theatrical events, and design opulent and magical festival spaces and venues. The company has worked and designed at festivals, wild spaces, theatres, parties, weddings and performances all over the world, including: Day Of The Dead (Mexico), Secret Garden Party (UK), Fusion Festival (Germany), Burning Man Festival (US), Macau (China), Expo Bicentenario Guanajuato (Mexico) and Rainbow Serpent Festival (Australia).
Fizzy Fingers has launched two fashion collections and staged numerous catwalk shows in Australia. Their work taps into our innate need for ceremony and self-expression. They create iridescent costume and art to celebrate the exterior and illuminate the interior; their work is like a portal between worlds, a treasure map to the mysteries and depths of our own existence as individuals and as a collective.
