2015/16 fashion design | graduation collection & catwalk: history repeating
Past and Future form a present with classical references taken out of historical and cultural context. Digital technology combined with traditional craftsmanship point to a comeback of opulence and decor with a focus on surface and texture.
The timelines are being removed from history as the past takes on new relevance. The old and new form unlikely partnerships as fresh interpretations of masterpieces clear the way for a subtle return to romance.
The graduation collections of 2016/17 revitalize classic fabrics and patterns with a modern touch, where contemporary, mid-century and Victorian periods are respectfully re-interpreted and mixed in a tasteful manner.
