TATA CHRISTIANE / FRANCE

www.tatachristiane.com

Fashion and costume label Tata Christiane was founded in 2007 by Julie Bourgeois and Hanrigabriel. Together they create collections with both serial and unique pieces and run a costume design atelier for theatre, film and art projects. Tata Christiane is a vision of the street costume. It proposes an absurd and disturbing vision of beauty, with decline, maladjustment, extravagance and immoderation. Using hand made and industrial production, the design and the cuts, the materials and the fabrics follow from the adaptation of poetic museum, costume, and street wear pieces, into a contemporary street costume.

www.lukamaurer.com

Luka Maurer’s aim is clear : the exploration and adaptation of the traditional three piece suit. Maurer, the winner of the 2011 Best Fashion Design Collection, HEAD, Geneva, believes male clothing has not changed since the 19th century, though our expectations have. By revisiting the well-founded elegance of the past and adapting it to the modern man, Luka Maurer delivers a wearable, sophisticated and bold AW12/13 collection, which comprises a strong, sensual dimension.

VAPORETTA / GERMANY

Design label Vaporetta Berlin was founded by Isabel Pikart in 2001. During the Berlin Fashion Week showroom days, Vaporetta Berlin presents their first ring collection. The combination and reinterpretation of South American and European lifestyles is one of the  themes explored by Vaporetta Berlin. Inspiration is also drawn from Brazilian Neoconcretismo, characterized by a “longing for form”. Vaporetta Berlin’s “L’Histoire de Mimi Cri” ring collection is crafted from porcelain and will be available in three models: Pool Blue (azure blue), Bicho (black blue) and Ouro Branco (snow-white and partially gold-plated). Each model is limited to 32 pieces and is numbered by hand.

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.

ZILLMANN / GERMANY

Berlin based label Zillmann takes extraordinary materials, and a no rules approach to design to create their whimsical collections. Their current collection “Underdog”, explores a fantastic journey from the underwater world to the universe, proposing a meeting between alien life and earthly rabbits. The collection includes accessories such as hats, fascinators and necklaces, all made in limited runs. Zillmann have also released a new T-shirt collection entitled “Kneipmkinda” featuring unique hand airbrushed designs.

GLAW / GERMANY

www.glaw-berlin.com

Feminine elegance harmoniously juxtaposed with cool and refreshing cuts form the basis of the Berlin based label Glaw. Nostalgic nuances of times gone by reflect the architectural, artistic and literary inspirations of founders Jesko Wilke and Poweleit Maria, recent graduates of the Berlin branch of the International Academy of Fashion ESMOD. The feel and colour palate of their AW 12/13 collection recalls the work of painter David Friedrich, remodelling traditional silhouettes and forms through tie-dyed leathers and hearty reds, and updating them to a modern context.
