Hard to believe, but true! Just one year ago, I gained my Bachelor’s degree in fashion design and so quickly my Master’s time is over. The last year really flew by and this week I submitted my final collection “Heroes and Thieves” to the Kingston School of Art London. I would like to share the results, including my moodboards, designs and my own very personal source of inspiration with you today!
The collection is inspired by two very different times. Furniture and fashion design details from the 1990s are combined with traditional historic silhouettes and patterns from the Biedermeier period, thus, creating an eclectic womenswear collection. As the collection has been developed in our third term which has started right after the lockdown, we have not been able to produce real garments but therefore created all theoretical work around the garments, including technical drawings, measurement charts, and Tech Packs.
A very important part in the collection are the interesting and partly asymmetrical silhouettes. Big, deformed, draped and colourful – all quite different from each other but still forming a collection. Each garment features a special technique which can be known either from furniture or fashion (such as crochet coasters, weaving techniques or indigo dying), an upcycled material or a print design developed by myself.
Now it’s time to wait for my final results which we will receive in Autumn this year. Until then I will focus on the Face Mask Business, develop the idea further and also start some applications. Let’s see where it takes me next!
