2019: ANNA MEETS X I MENSWEAR I WOMANSWEAR
Anna meets X
This collection is inspired by people and materials to shift the focus towards a more conscious fashion identity. The design process demands creativity of designer who are trained to focus on aesthetics. They have an essential role of decision-making to support a sustainable future. Collaborating across disciplines challenges designer to think beyond the design process. This collection is based on three collaborations discovering pathways that lead to garments with value and quality. Those individual concepts, joint together, celebrate materials and craftsmanship.
The idea of ANNA MEETS X shows the nature of fashion is to interact with each other to worship what is surrounding us.
2017 : ASK ME I Menswear I Womenswear
In this project I reused details of the old men suits and reworked them in my own design.
I reused elements like the collar.
I discovered elements like hand stitched details and horse-hair-lining.
I used the fabric in stripes for macramee.
"ASK ME" is a fashion collection using sustainable materials and upcycling of men suits to mix art and function in fashion. “Reusing and Reinvent” meets “Upcycling”
As a designer, I wanted to bring two keywords that are important for me and my generation through fashion together because fashion connects. Narcissism and Sustainability have at first nothing in common but through points like attentiveness and versatility you see there is a common ground. Surrealistic photographs of Salvador Dali and Philippe Halsman inspired the fashion collection visually through collages and sketches. Deconstruction of the suits and Draping shaped new silhouettes. To bring function within the new styles some sleeves are detachable through hidden snap fastener.
“ASK ME” is a timeless collection for men and womenswear and a big role plays the surface design. The collection is mainly in dark colours or natural shades. The beige and grey tones are inspired by the meaning of recycling and the time as a natural tool changing colours.
The fashion collection mixes different techniques like macramé, print, stitching and 3D applications. Elegant and classical shapes like a blazer or coat is mixed with sportswear elements. Craftsmanship and the important of small details is a huge value and is a focus in the collection. Old men suits are reused in different kind of ways: The fabric is recycled through macramé technique – the woven patches are used as applications. The horsehair lining of the suits is reused for corset – the special details and shoulder patches inspired the 3D-applications. Surface design plays an important role. The used materials are natural fibres like hemp, ramie, linen and innovative material like Tencel or viscose.
