4th year | 1. semester: design process,  fashion show


a past-modern approach


"The future and the past blend together with classical references taken out of historical and cultural context. Archives and collections are refreshed and revisited via new ways of combining digital technology and craftsmanship. Opulence and decor see a subtle but steady comeback, with a focus on surface and texture.

As the past takes on new relevance and time becomes non-linear, the terms ‘future’ and ‘progress’ are interpreted in different ways. The old and new form unlikely partnerships as fresh interpretations of masterpieces clear the way for a subtle return to romance and opulence. The timelines are being removed from history, and we see a pairing of the digital and the crafted, museums becoming ‘experiences’, and archiving developing into a creative form of expression.

Romantic and opulent surfaces are applied with a fresh artistic approach. Nostalgic and romantic textiles, like lace and velvet are revitalised with a modern touch. Contemporary, mid-century and Victorian periods are mixed and layered with both irreverence and respect."
