TRINITAS / GERMANY

http://trinitas.soleils.org/

TRINITAS creates its own visual world. It abstracts, disassembles and puts things into new contexts,
without judging about the origin, its beauty or ugliness. By working only with black and white, original contrasts are neutralised and new ones are created.

TRINITAS does this by combining different materials and printing techniques and by using non-standard cuts. New collections are released as VOLUMES, and each of them has their own topic. All products are limited and made in Europe.

SDOD / TAIWAN

www.facebook.com/sdodtw

What SDOD attempts to state is structured upon, as a mankind, the basic rights, a free will, a self-determination practiced on every individual.
In a fake, plastic utopia, the people there, lives with a happy end story, share the same smile face. However, this is how we are taught, an utopia
we should long for.

We’re pinging the one who is the minority, but has his own free will, willing to encourage himself and others, and doubt the mainstream. Let us stick together and make a difference

PETRA PTÁČKOVÁ / PARIS

Petra Ptáčková brings fairytale in fashion. For her style she uses a term “magic realism” which defines her clothes as a piece of art in accordance with wearability.

The presented S/S 14 collection is called “J’ai rencontré un ptit bonhomme” and its an open follow-up of the story about little prince. Its about the game, about user’s creativity as the garments are variable and reconstructive so you can make your own new shapes and think out your way of wearing.

UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES TRIER – GERMANY FACHHOCHSCHULE TRIER

We didn’t. We had. Why?

We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces. Why the face?
A dark cellar, three illuminated boxes sunk in the ground. Human beings dancing on a screen. Creatures, sterile, naked, sleeping in the boxes.
We didn’t. We had. Why? is the examination by five students of the University of Applied Sciences Trier. Finding themselves in a time between study and their expected future, which they face only having their final creations.
Agnes Boleslawski, Elisa Damm, Paula Knorr, Jennifer Koch and Raphaela Rose started their fashion design studies in spring 2009 at the University of Applied Sciences Trier, which they will now graduate with their BA Collections. Their responsible supervisor is Prof. Dirk Wolfes. They would like to acknowledge support for their installation for EDGED from Tobias Benz and Bastian Reuter.

PAULA KNORR

Paula Knorr’s graduate collection “Skin” centres around the abstract representation of the naked human form. Details of individual body outlines and different surface qualities offer diverse sources of inspiration. Shapes, colours and textures, when taken out of their original context, present new and strange attractions. Despite all deforming abstraction even the dissected nudeness still provides a sensual and erotic character which is typified by this collection.

 

JENNIFER KOCH

“Path to Decay” is the graduate collection of Jennifer Koch. Due to her German / Korean background Koch has always shown an interest in other cultures, with a particular interest in central Asian nomadic tribes. Her graduate collection transforms this culture and aesthetic, creating a post apocalyptic world where tribes recycle items preserved from their civilised past.

ELISA DAMM

Elisa Damm’s graduate collection “Random Noise” is an experimental examination of the different and seemingly incompatible characteristics found in a cocoon. Protective but fragile, armored but weightless and transparent. Smooth and perfect, but spun following a chaotic principle. A tightly wrapped protective coat, the cocoon is at the mercy of its surrounding world. This exploration manifests itself in transparent down jackets with strict but unusual cuts, technical fabrics, and fragile hand knitted, knotted and woven surfaces that visually replicate the tension between self protection and vulnerability, order and chaos. “Random Noise” is an ongoing work and the graduate collection of Elisa Damm of FH Trier, supervised by Professor Dirk Wolfes.

AGNES BOLESLAWSKI

Agnes Boleslawski’s collection “Heliocentric” reflects on the notion of the sun as the centre of the universe. Three different overall patterns that embody their sun in a done and dusted sphere, act as an intermediary between subjective perception and objective exercise. The ten outfits of Boleslawski’s collection are based on the geometric form of a hexagon, using clear lines and sharp exceptions. Every piece is repeated three times in order to create a perfect ratio to its pattern, resulting in completely different outcomes.“Heliocentric” is Agnes Boleslawski’s graduate collection from FH Trier, supervised by Professor Dirk Wolfes.

RAPHAELA ROSE

Raphaela Rose explores the cultural revolution of the 1920’s in her graduate collection “The Twenties”. Rose was particularly drawn to the literary montage technique that emerged at the time, transferring this principle to fashion and incorporating it into her work. Elements of painting, film, literature and culture of the 1920´s are brought together and function as sources of inspiration for fabrication, colour palette and cut. Bauhaus, Kurt Schwitters, the films of Fritz Lang, self confident women such as Amelia Earheart and Josephine Baker and men’s fashion of the twenties were such sources.

I’VR – ISABEL VOLLRATH / GERMANY

www.isabelvollrath.com

Upon completing her studies, at the Berlin Weißensee School of Art, Isabel Vollrath received several awards including the “Go-East-Scholarship” of the DAAD, allowing her to spend two months at the Stieglitz-Academy for Art and Design in St. Petersburg. Innovative as well as artistic attempts, design-critical questions and conflicts concerning her job and business as fashion designer, confront her personal, varied experiences in Russia. Linguistic barriers and disorientation, loneliness and longing for familiar people and faces made her arrival to be a true “cultural shock”. A manifold mix of materials and sculptural elements determine the general view of the collection.
