IV edition Fashion Culture

IV-edition-fashion-culture

Even young kids know, that Washington DC has its White House where big political players meet and try to alter the world. Not everyone knows however, that London also has a White House, although instead of politics, White House in the capital of England tends to alter our visual experiences through promoting art and fashion. Perhaps a much nicer mission and definitely a much more entertaining one.

The impressive white stucco building, belonging to Prince Jan Zylinski, truly is a gem of a unexpectedly stunning location on a leafy street in Ealing, West London. For years now, the lush interiors of the Palace have been serving as a backdrop for many extravagant productions across fashion and music, with international pop star sensations, such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna, shooting their music videos there.

Jan Zylinski,  a keen enthusiast and promoter of all things arty and beautiful, has been hosting the Fashion Culture event in White House for the past three years and on the 12th of September, the Palace opened its doors yet again to welcome ten budding  designers from six European countries, as well as colourful crowd of journalists, photographers and keen fashion enthusiasts hailing from all over Europe.

Fashion Culture started in 2012 and since then has been working as platform connecting six  European countries and showcasing the best up and coming designers.  Graduates from London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, two London colleges that have been participating in Fashion Culture since its very beginning, yet again proved that London’ fashion scene is always fresh and exciting. This year they were competing against fresh blood from ASP from Lodz and SAPU from Cracow (both based in Poland) as well as prestigious ESMOD from Paris, POLIMODA from Florence, Beckmans College of Design from Stockholm and the Amsterdam Fashion Institute.

The models stormed the runway to a soundtrack by Polish born Sabio Janiak who took the audience on a journey down the Amazonian river.  This year’ collections were an eclectic mix of styles: from floaty chiffon gowns, structured knitwear, through edgy street style- inspired looks to conceptual, wearable art – like designs.

All completely different and each one telling a unique story, therefore there’s no doubt that the task to choose the winner, was not a particularly easy one. Fashion Culture operates in a truly democratic way, letting the audience choose the best collection. This year was no different and the main prize (photo shoot to be produced by the Fashion Culture team) went to Paula Carmen Rimoli, recent graduate from Polimoda, Florence, who vowed the crowd with her beautiful origami- inspired collection.

Party__MG_9181

Rimoli’s work crosses the boundaries between fashion and art in the most innovative way. By mixing paper, cotton and leather Rimoli’s collection presents surprisingly wearable garments with an undoubted wow factor. Despite the fact that she has only graduated this year, Paula’s work has been already featured in the Italian Vogue, so watch out as no doubt we’ll be hearing her name very loudly and very often across various other fashion publications and platforms.

Another graduate that attracted lots of attention, was Paulina Ptasznik  (ASP in Lodz, Poland) with her SS 2015 collection.  Her ‘MESSIS’ is a men’s and women’s collection,  with references folk  traditions connected with the end of the harvest time.

This year’ edition of Fashion Culture in a nutshell? Fashion. Young talent. Creativity with no borders. Celebration of expression through Art.  And although we hardly caught a breath after the event, we’re busy plotting for the next year already. Find us on Facebook, catch us on Instagram, come and visit in person next year. Lets celebrate fashion together.

Cracow Fashion Week keeps on evolving and renewing itself

Special Review & Interview by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

After 20 years of experience the Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design (SAPU) has achieved a high standard and an excellent reputation in the fashion industry, locally and overseas. As the only private fashion school in Poland, SAPU has received the Honorary Golden Thread – a prestigious award for distinguished individuals and institutions in fashion. Its graduates work in top fashion houses, for such icons as Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, John Galliano or Claude Bonucci. Thanks to SAPU’s diploma show and an intensive promotion of its graduates, the City of Cracow was in 2013 described as one of the world’s fashion capitals ranked higher than Moscow, Frankfurt, Vienna, Miami, San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro. The Diploma Show Cracow Fashion Awards takes place in late March, where the best collections, as the highlight of the school’s academic year are presented. The show is always attended by many distinguished guests, international experts, industry representatives, gallery owners and media. And it is just a small part of the Cracow Fashion Week – a huge, artistic event jam-packed with diverse workshops, lectures, fashion shows and exhibitions of graduates’ paintings, drawings, photography and jewelry works.

As fashion expert and one of the main partners, Fashion Culture had the pleasure to sit in the Jury with international guests to judge highlighted collections from Poland for picking winners in each category. 2 days of competition, 38 applicants, 14 wisely selected collections classified to the Cracow Fashion Awards and in the end just a few winners. Hardly sharing views on whose collection is the best, Fashion Culture decided to grant a private award to the collection that explored rhythm and lines – Laura Slepowronska caught our attention.

INTERVIEW

There was nothing new. Nothing that swept me off my feet. Out of habit I was looking for something out of the assembly line, something that doesn’t follow the rules and undergo the collective judgment. I was looking for a collection that would be addressed to the 21st-century fashion explorers. Instead, I saw the copy-paste phenomenon, trashed styling, vain attempts of experiments, empty promises. While waiting for any kind of new ideas, I noticed only one outstanding collection. By challenging current codes and by combining contrast, deriving inspiration straight from the 1950s, Laura Slepowronska proved that she is able to create something authentic, that will protect us from the pre-packed shapes, we are constantly pushed into.  Playing with different shades of black and pastel blue, Laura brought out the youthful femininity characteristic for the 1950s and showed it on the catwalk during the Cracow Fashion Week 2015. Her bell-shaped silky skirts and hand knitted cashmere sweaters with three-quarter sleeves caught my attention. Each look reminded me of the neat, versatile and chic shirtwaist dress popular in the 1950s as the ‘ultimate uniform’ of US women.
I met up with the talented Laura right after the Cracow Fashion Awards to grant her our magazine’s award and talk about the ‘ÉCLAIR’ collection. Afterwards, she mentioned it was her runway début .

Agata Mayer: What was your motivation and idea behind the ÉCLAIR collection?

Laura Ślepowrońska: Fashion needs to be aesthetic, appropriate and useful. That is why I focused so much on proportion and good quality fabrics. I wanted to create a ready-to-wear collection inspired by women from the 50′s. I wanted it to be feminine and delicate, but also outstanding by using diverse fabrics like leather, jacquard, lustrous nickel, seagrass and mohair yarn (a silk-like fabric).

A.M. What was the biggest challenge while creating?

L.Ś. To be careful not loosing myself in making up theories and unnecessary philosophy around my own concept. To remember that it is an universal, timeless and well-designed product. It is always a big challenge to create compatible pieces and at the same time so diverse. It is too easy to follow existing patterns, so I truly recommend to get out sometimes and clear your mind focuing on something completely different.

A.M. Just mentioning, you had your show at Cracow Fashion Week / Cracow Fashion Awards this spring. How did you like it?

L.Ś. Oh, I will remember this year’s Fashion Week for a long time. It was such an important day for me. The show lasted just a few minutes but the feeling seemed eternal! For me it was a shot of adrenaline that allowed me to be in two or even more places at the same time. It also forced me to stay focused. There was no place for panic anymore! I must say, it was – and will be – a really addictive feeling. Definitely worth waiting for this moment!

A.M. What were the biggest challenges preparing the show?

L.Ś. Time, or rather the lack of it, is the biggest objective. You have to be really focused and self-disciplined to make it all work. Suddenly everything depends on you and the decisions you make. All details need to be worked out and really precise. You should concentrate on details and overall look at the same time. It is really challenging.

A.M. How did you feel when the show was over? You received a lot of positive feedbacks – didn’t you?

L.Ś. Physically I was really tired but it was a good feeling. I was thunderstruck when I realized how many people appreciated my work. I got such a positive feedback receiving so many awards. I knew I was heading in the right direction. To release the tension after the show I went out for a party with all my closest friends. It was an amazing night!

A.M. Looking back, how and when did your passion for fashion design begin?

L.Ś. In our home everybody likes to dress up. We have always taken great care of our looks. We give each other advices and talk about this a lot. When I was a little kid, my mom taught me how to distinguish the best and the most precious materials. She loves silk, cashmere cotton and linen – all natural and high-quality, never synthetics. She taught me how to love all that too. I have always been thinking about fashion, so one day I have just decided to start sketching, painting and sewing. Finally I started designing my own things at Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design.

A.M. Has Cracow influenced your collection? If so, in what way?

L.Ś. I have been living here for three years now and I have to say that I really like this city. There are some places that stimulate creativity a lot and they are always far away from home. The best ideas always come during my travels.

A.M. What does the future look like for you after graduating from KSA?

L.Ś. I am planning to start working on my second collection soon and to show the final result during the Fashion Week, next year. For sure I would like to paint and to draw more. Also a few trips already planned, so to be honest I can’t wait to get a new boost of inspirations and motivations and to see where it will take me.

A.M. Thank you.

FASHION CULTURE JOINED FASHION REVOLUTION!

agata-mayer-fashion-revolution

Review by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

FAST FASHION IS NOT FREE. SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE IS PAYING…

I am more than sure you all have heard of the Fashion Revolution Day! Or maybe not…
Two years ago, photos of the unimaginable devastation at a clothes factory that collapsed in Bangladesh shocked the entire world.
1133 people died in the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A further 2500 were injured. They were killed while working for familiar fashion brands. For me, one of the most surprising aspects of the Rana Plaza disaster was that, afterwards, many brands did not know whether or not they had been producing clothing within the building.
“We knew a disaster like this was going to happen,” Orsola de Castro, co-founder of Fashion Revolution Day, tells Mashable. “There were workers complaining about the infrastructure for months but were threatened with being fired if they did not show up to work. There was so much wrong that could have been prevented, which is what prompted outrage.”
“It’s a very unclear process, finding everything from fabrics and fibers to what the supply chains are. The truth is, the companies don’t want to know where their fabric is from. The less they know, the less responsibility they feel they need to have. We’re at the point where apparel brands need to be accountable.” said Linda Greer, senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and health director of Clean by Design.

THE TRUE COST!

Fashion Revolution is a global coalition calling for systemic reform of the fashion supply chain. It is the catalyst that brings together those who want to see change within the industry. It raises awareness of the true cost of fashion, showing the world that change is possible. It is a simple but important connection between us – fashion lovers and the people who made our clothes. Whether you are high street or high end, independent designer or a large brand, fashion lover, blogger or wherever you are in the world – you should join this initiative. It is about re-connecting broken links and celebrating the relationship between shoppers and the people who make our clothes, shoes, accessories and jewelry – all the things we call ‘fashion’.
“We aren’t just purchasing a garment or accessory, but a whole chain of value and relationships,” said the people behind Fashion Revolution.
Fashion Revolution is about building a future where an accident like this in Bangladesh never happens again. Last year this action reached number 1 trending worldwide on social media such as Twitter and got over 8 million Google hits. Fashion icons, celebrities, supermodels, artists, designers, academics, press, writers, business leaders and parliamentarians lent support to the campaign. This year, the movement was even bigger.

BE CURIOUS, FIND OUT and DO SOMETHING!

On Friday the movement was calling us all to upload a pic of our clothes inside out with a hashtag #whomademyclothes and #fashrev. Social media was being flooded with images of garments showing the labels to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion and to celebrate best practice. For instance, established designer Stella McCartney shared with her million-plus Instagram followers a picture of herself wearing a jacket from her collection inside out, with the caption: ‘Show your label and ask #whomademyclothes for Fashion Revolution Day’.
“If companies don’t know how and where their products are made, then there’s no way for them to ensure their workers are protected,” said Orsola de Castro, co-founder of the event. “Transparency is important because it shows a company’s willingness to be held accountable for its supply chain and this builds up public trust.” Fellow co-founder Carry Somers added: “The fashion industry supply chain is fractured and producers have become faceless. This is costing lives. We have incredible power as consumers, if we choose to use it.”
Knowing who made our clothes requires transparency, and this implies openness, honesty, communication and accountability. Changing the world is possible. By using the power of fashion we all are able to inspire a permanent change in the fashion industry and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain – the whole chain of value and relationships. In 2015 we focus on transparency. Why? Transparency is not that easy. It involves fully understanding how your business runs and with whom it works. This is a journey for our industry to celebrate those who are doing something about it. Transparency means that companies know who makes their clothes – at least where they are stitched as a first port of call – and then communicate this to their customers, shareholders and staff (in accordance to the Fashion Revolution Report).

HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR CLOTHING IS ETHICALLY MADE?!

 

Looking down at what you’re wearing now, do you exactly know who made it and where?

• Make a research where it’s from – even a simple web search
• Buy less, choose well, make it last
• Go vintage and try to exchange your clothes and accessories
• Reduce and recycle
• Buy organic – many companies started offering organic lines. By purchasing organic materials, you’re adding less to the landfills full of clothing that cannot decompose

The Fashion Culture Team encourage people. I personally encourage people to start asking ‘who made your clothes?’ in order to initiate human connections throughout the supply chain. By asking this question you support worker welfare. It is extremely important to stay focus and be curious. You have to remember that the Fashion Revolution Day is the day on which we all celebrate fashion as a positive influence, and all those who contribute to making it so. It will rally the innovators, the buyers, the shoppers, the media, the commentators, the activists and everyone in between. Everyone!

Scandinavian Minimalism

annaleena-karlsson-sweden-agata-mayer-swedish-practical-minimalism
 Interview by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

Since 1950s Scandinavian style has been associated with highly functional design inspired by nature and the northern climate. In Sweden this ‘Modernistic Spirit’ is called funkis and it transformed into what we today know as Scandinavian Minimalism with all its clean, beautiful, uncluttered, minimal elements and simple lines.
I caught up with Annaleena Leino Karlsson – a Swedish designer and interior stylist – and asked a few questions about her understanding of minimalism, proportion and her passion.

Agata Mayer: Why Minimalism?

Annaleena L. Karlsson: I didn’t really plan to create minimalistic design, I just happened to fall for simplicity and explicitness.

A.M. You work with exciting materials. Can you explain your working process? Are your designs developed in the process or do you prepare yourself by making a lot of sketches and technical drawings?

A.L.K. My design is developed in processes. Often I choose the material first, and then comes the shape. I usually sketch a rough outline, but the design is mostly developed gradually through samples.

A.M. How is it to experiment in the matter of minimalism. Is it just simplifying?

A.L.K.Minimalism isn’t simple, really. You need to find a balance and a distinctiveness, which takes courage.

A.M. Do you have any favorite materials to work with?

A.L.K. I prefer raw, genuine materials. Steel is a favorite. Stone as well.

A.M. Can you explain what good design is, through the objects placed in your studio / apartment?

A.L.K. I believe an object should highlight the character of the room. Bringing beauty to the room, adding a little extra to it – like a pair of shoes that makes the outfit even better.

A.M. What fuels you when you are developing something?

A.L.K. Innovative ideas. Usually shapes. Explicitness. Things that awakens something within me.

A.M.  Is there a project that you are particularly proud of?

A.L.K. It’s hard to pick one. But I love projects where I’ve been asked to design a custom-made product for a customer and the result is appreciated. Like when I designed a counter for a photographers studio.

A.M. You also work as a Set Designer. What qualities does a person need to have nowadays, to become a successful Set Designer?

A.L.K. You need to stick out, to dare. And you need to be socially competent. Often you work in different teams, and it is preferable if you like to cooperate…

A.M. What defines a beautiful piece of furniture in your opinion?

A.L.K.  It must have personality, character. A simplistic shape, and be made of natural material – for example stone or wood.

A.M. How do you live personally? How important is furniture in your own home?

A.L.K. It is really important. I don’t own especially many design classics, but I choose carefully every object that gets over my doorstep.

A.M. Have you ever thought about entering into the fashion branch and start working with recognized fashion photographers and clothing brands?

A.L.K. I’m not planning to, but I wouldn’t say no to it. I enjoy different projects. And I also believe that interior design and fashion aren’t far from each other. It wouldn’t be foreign to mix the two of them, but rather exciting.

A.M. Are there any designers that influence you more than others?

A.L.K. Absolutely. Faye Toogood from UK, as well as a bunch of Japanese designers. And I also love Finish design.

A.M. What do you like to do besides designing?

A.L.K. I like to photograph, and to style. To combine these three things are my favorite.

A.M. Thank you.

Getting Animal – Getting Warm

agata-mayer-getting-warm-fendi-furs-staying-warmSpecial Review by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

Fashion Weeks came to an end. It’s been a hectic period jam-packed with exciting activities, business meetings and jet lag feeling. The most prominent fashion weeks are held in the four fashion capitals of the world: Milan, Paris, New York and London. But more often, everybody’s eyes are looking at other corners of the world, where countries like Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, China, South Africa, Russia, Singapore, Mexico are going to set tongues wagging, in a very positive way. Fashion Weeks held several months in advance of the season. From January through April designers showcase their autumn and winter collections. From September through November they present their spring and summer collections. This season, furs and animal prints were a common denominator on the catwalks.

KEEP CALM & LOVE FUR

In the 90s, Italian designers celebrated the return of high-voltage fashion. Their fascination with animal skins and luxurious furs evoked an impression of decadent glamour. Leopard, cheetah and zebra prints that have long provided inspiration for fashion designers are back again. In contemporary fashion, wearing animal skin is interpreted as a desire to convey predatory instincts. A spotted woman in a animal coat might represent the archetypal femme fatale. Italy became an international centre of fashion after World War II. During the 1950s, combining traditions of Parisian haute couture with the Italian aesthetic the Fontana Sisters designed clothes for many Hollywood’s world-famous divas, such as Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor or Ava Gardner. They specialized in luxurious evening wear that contrasted perfectly with the softness of the silver fox stole draped around the arms.
In addition to animal prints, real fur had to finally find a way of interpreting it in fashion without compromising ethical concerns, having the animal rights movement from 1980s and the both national and international legislation from 1973 against it. Karl Lagerfeld, which originally specialized in fur and luxury leather goods, being creative consultant to the Italian Fendi modernized the label and changed the perception of fur as a conventional symbol. Nowadays, over 70 % of recent catwalk shows featured fur, from Marc Jacobs or Louis Vuitton to J. Mendel, Max Mara and Marni.
But there are still anti-fur designers such as Stella McCartney. She has never bowed to pressure to use leather or fur in her collections and has even resisted the lure of faux-fur in the past. But suddenly she has created a cruelty-free collection for Autumn/Winter 2015 with faux fur. Being asked why, she answered: “I feel like maybe things have moved on, and it’s time, and we can do fabrics which look like fur, if we take them somewhere else”, adding “Modern fake fur looks so much like real fur, that the moment it leaves the atelier no one can tell it’s not the real thing. And I’ve struggled with that.”

Fur, fake or not and animal motifs played a key role throughout this season. It is said, that in fashion world leopard is a color. Animal prints are timeless, chic and always in style. The leopard trend never fades that easily and can be used in almost any form. This year’s catwalks showed more wildness and savagery than ever. For instance, Raf Simons, Dior’s creative director turned to more raw and primal inspirations for the Autumn/Winter 2015 Dior collection. He pushed fashion boundaries again. From floral, romantic, emotional pieces to swirling psychedelic panther prints and strong, contrasting colors. Christian Dior first offered leopard print in 1947, which was revolutionary at the time. Today, it doesn’t bother anyone anymore. Roberto Cavalli’s ready-to-wear collection displayed an array of ombré dresses, fur coats and iconic animal prints. “Instinct? I like that word,” said Miuccia Prada after her show. Her collection was also full of multi-colored leopard and python prints and dense patterns.
Is the fashion industry trying to force it on us or maybe society is finally ready to embrace fur?
Take a look at some ‘furry’ printed fashion statements.

The next generation in fashion

agata-mayer-beckmans-design-school-sneak-peek-designhögskola

Special Review by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

I was invited to the Sneak Peek experimental show organized by the second-year fashion students of Beckmans College of Design. The message was simple: thirteen students presented their individual collections of three outfits each. After crossing the threshold of Beckmans Designhögskola I was surprised by modest but still very nice ‘welcome treatment’. Strawberry smoothies, cookies and some drinks – as a nice gesture while waiting for the pre-presentation. A white carpet referred to the event, sponsor’s logos and typically Swedish minimalistic mood of the displayed pre-presentation, marked the route to the room where the bags full of gifts were waiting for the newly arrived guests.
I must say that at the beginning I was very sceptical, watching one collection after the other. I didn’t see anything new, I didn’t see anything that stuck in my mind. For being  second-year fashion students – collections were really good, but being the second-year fashion students of Beckmans College of Design, I expected something more. Not only ‘plastic’ influences drawn from the 90s techno-generation. I was aware that presented textiles and garments have been crafted by hand and that every collection was diverse and rooted in the students’ ideas and visions of what experimental fashion can be, by researching and analyzing fashion communication, media and society.
For sure, I was impressed by the spectacular video effects and the well selected music. Without exception, music plays a vital role in the interactive process of audience behavior. In this case, tempo, volume and genre influenced a lot, changing the powers of my observation. A pure visual entertainment that held the attention and interest of the gathered audience.

“In search for authenticity and dignity the communications students decided to tell thirteen different fashion stories using models, styling, body, face and camera movements only, without other props. With fold-out sheets in the catalogue and names partially visible they emphasize the fashion students work and create a sense that the industry successively unveils and discovers their work. From now on everything can happen!” – said Annika Berner, Course Director Visual Communication. Marie O’Connor, Course Director Fashion added: “To look is one thing, but to really see means to scrutinize and question what is and what can be.”
Following her words, I started to look deeper and suddenly I was astonished by a few really well–composed pieces. The menswear collection stood out from the rest.

Behind the ‘Nollvisionen’ collection by Olle Daunfeldt stood the car crash idea and the relationship between power, technology and fragility. He created a dramatic silhouette as a physical confrontation with the car. He sees the clothes as a car body – emotionally and visually, and the feeling of safety is just an illusion. Fashion illusion. Asked in what way he has researched his materials, Olle answered:
“The material research has in many cases been sort of a creative laboratory. The meeting between a textile fibre and an industrial product is an opposition, but they belong together in my head. Most important to me was to find a balance between the collections separate parts and to find materials that effectively expressed the different moods I was interested in shaping”.

Jenny Larsson is the other name worth remembering. Her ‘Allt är bra’ collection made me think. Inspired by the street culture, Jenny underlined what is beyond the aspect of function in a garment. By function she meant both the physical and the aesthetic aspects.

Anna Scholz and her ‘Imperfect pearl’ moved me into 17th century, Madame de Pompadour’s look and Marie Antoinette’s silhouette. Anna was definitely inspired by the baroque in her cuts. She worked in a sculptural way with volume and strong colors, with the desire to push an expression of femininity to extremes. And she did it in an outstanding way.

I admired also Klara Modigh’s statement in her “Fake fur” collection. Klara said – “My collection is about the fake and the real. Animal, fake animal, fake human and synthetic materials. There’s a glitch in the fact that a lot of people, including myself, would never wear fur but buy leather shoes without blinking, and never think that down jackets contain feathers. I’ve tried to play with the material choices in a way to twist the eye on how they are being used. It’s an exploration into how nature is usually interpreted in clothing; like in floral prints and fur”. She also added: “Creating is always political. In every creative action you can choose to reproduce and work within the society that exists or go against it. My garments don’t have an obvious political message, but I create within an ethical framework; not using extremely thin models, not using fur, and not using references of violence”.

The result shown in images, digital communication and film was moved to the showroom, where collections previously seen on the screen could now be experienced in person, organoleptically on still-standing live models. It was very interesting to experience something out of the adopted fashion framework. It reminded me how long tradition of interdisciplinary student collaborations has had Beckmans College of Design. Fashion as a tool of experimentation, allowed students to blur boundaries between clothing, technology, craftsmanship, fantasy and reality. At this stage, you can’t demand from the students – who are in the middle of their education and whose main goal is to experiment and play with fashion, at the same time trying to find themselves – well thought-out statements and mastered skills. One thing is sure. My eyes travelled and it was an interesting journey. And these thirteen talented students left their individual, bold mark as young creators.

See some of my other favorite pieces from the show. Enjoy.
