A couple of months back, my school held an annual festive event, Footfest- an event that celebrates football, as the name suggests, but also the different cultures of the students in the school. During the day, stands selling food and goods from various countries are spread around the campus, and in the evening a series of events take place to showcase works of talented students. One of those events is a fashion show, in which I participated this year as a designer. Above is a short video of the collection I presented, modeled by a number of gorgeous girls who perfectly portrayed the woman I design for- elegant and graceful, yet fierce as hell.
About the collection:
The main idea was to take a drift away from the dress- the most common item of clothing on the runway (especially in scholar fashion shows)- without completely neglecting femininity. While incorporating garments from both men and women's wardrobes, modifying basic items such as shirts and trousers, I aimed to create new silhouettes as well as stick to classic blouses and pants. The collection begins with a short outfit featuring voluminous feather-decorated sleeves and eventually ends in a long flowing gown with an iridescent feather corset... a "black swan" kind of thing. Feathers symbolize freedom: the collection is about women becoming more powerful, fierce and independent. Liberated from the simple pantsuit, leaning towards asymmetric shapes and unconventional fabrics. It's all about taking a risk and the idea of change. It's about not being afraid... growing a pair of wings, taking control and exploring, like a bird flying above the world, beyond any limits.
