Inspired by the 60’s and 70’s rebellious fashion while reflecting on current global social and political movements, the colour palette is created from a bold kaleidoscopic of floral print simulating confusion and change.
It wraps you and exposes you; it penetrates you and placates you; it shepherds and it sways; it glitters and it awakes. Eternity dwells in it, it waltzing at your fingertip. Don’t hide from the night. Go to the wild, chase the light from the sky. The darker the night is, the brighter the stars shine.
Bold as Love
Bold as Love was inspired by the venerable Jimi Hendrix song and album “Bold as Love.” Working with the vibration of color, Dr Zwack will present a dress in every color of the rainbow just as Jimi sings of in his lyrics. It is the designer’s aspiration to ennoble the spirit of Jimi Hendrix by channeling his song into a collection imbued with his music and present it to the world.
Spring into Joy
Spring into Joy pushed the boundaries of how to incorporate dynamic silhouettes and unique fabric choices. The designer has two extremely juxtaposing sources of inspiration: Game of Thrones, and retro 90’s fashion. Military style layered clothing and layered gowns parallel the various layers Game of Thrones itself brings in. Layers and layering, as well as adding tactical components like large jackets and straps are key to the collection.
N & Mil
Geoj Official showed a two part collection this NYFW that may shock current clientele. N was bold and in your face, while the Mil portion encompassed softer more muted tones. N & Mil are quite different than any of Geoj Official’s previous work, including the collection shown at NZFW last year.
Op. Symphony Nº 0000
Gathering inspiration from the vibrant palette of colors of different galaxies around our Observable Universe, CAROLINE PERINO’s Spring/Summer 2019 fashion collection is deeply inspired in the stars, the abstract shapes cloudy like shaped in the pictures of galaxies, and mainly, the concept of time, travel and space.
