Валеску Джассо Колладо
Westminster graduate collection

作品深受80年代意大利Memphis風格家具影響,結合橡膠,泡沫,金屬,創作出一系列極具童趣而硬朗的作品。橡膠布料和PVC本身已經容易塑造立體造型,設計師運用乾脆利落的剪裁,創造出誇張的幾何線條。在服裝的製作上幾乎看不到車縫位,反而用金屬螺絲來固定。在穿法上也改變了傳統方式,雖然不算具備實穿性,但本身Memphis的出現,就是要改變當時單調的實用主義風格。在布料正反面亦運用兩種顔色,當布料被扭轉而呈現出底色,令色彩在視覺上不顯得單調。整個系列把Memphis家具設計轉變成時裝,雖然所有items都比正常服裝大上幾倍,但設計師無論在廓型和顔色上都非常協調,大膽的實驗性作品中卻流露出童話的夢幻感。

ROSIE DANFORD PHILLIPS

Autumn Winter 2019
Rose Danford-Phillips admits it: as the daughter of gardeners, she draws her inspiration from nature. And when she evokes her love for lace, she speaks about a “delicate sensation of petals” … With her skill at vegetation metaphors, she explains that she transformed a magnificent piece of Sophie Hallette lace into a “rampant vine” for her graduate collection at the Royal College of Art. Either by combining it with a fringed silk to reinforce the idea of an uncontrollable, wild nature or by hand-embroidering it onto plastic to create a sense of nature recreated in a laboratory. “Lace tells a story” she says and hers transports us into a poetic, feminine and modern tale.

Latifa Neyazi

Graduate Fashion Week 2018

“One of the boldest statement pieces of the week, even more so than the fluorescent collections! Neyazi’s huge puffy fat suit resembling garment was incredibly unusual. The ballooning dress took on a very unique silhouette.The models were send down the runway wearing headpieces which matched the round bunched bottom shaped dress. The brown, beige and burnt orange colour pallet evoked a bonfire and the huge blown up dresses adhere to a fire form.” Chloe Alexandra Lawrence

Manon Kündig

Bowerbird
Manon Kündig’s master 2012 graduate menswear collection called ” Bowerbird” is full of digital prints and acid colours. Photoshop is probably one of the most important tools of her collection and she confesses being completely addicted to online research. Like the bird, she was inspired by to create her collection, bird stealing rubbish to create its nest; Manon stole Google images to create her prints. We asked Manon about her work and the relationship between the Internet and her collections.
