We Got Artistry That Comes To Life

The second showcase of Global Fashion Collective at New York Fashion Week on Thursday the 8th February, presented the work of progressive cutting-edge designers.

Their experimental F/W 18 collections create powerful messages by the influence of personal and artistic expression.

“Conceptual Artistry” is an avant-garde selection of conceptual work with an haute couture feel.

Canadian designer Kirsten Ley’s eponymous label features designs carefully crafted with a deep consciousness embracing the natural female form.

The artistic collection NERŌ explores the concept of abandoning the fear of death and yearning for the afterlife.

NERŌ highlights the exquisite and undeniable dichotomy of beauty and destruction with hard and soft surfaces in the collection’s textiles.

A dark feminine energy was expressed with deep greens and inky blacks.

The interplay between sculptured leather pieces and ruffled textile manipulations was balanced with fitted midi skirts and straight leg pants.

A long length jacket with fitted leather bodice and sizeable fur sleeves made a bold statement.

German designer Kim Tiziana Rottmüller’s signature is provocation in a feminine but playful way.

The collection BITTERSWEET is a fusion of the concepts ‘Prison’ and ‘Barbie’.

The designs are an artistic interpretation of a person wishing to break free from mental constriction, looking to the invisible prisons that exist only in people’s minds.

Volume and shape have influenced the designs, with oversized cylinders adorning the sleeves and an iron skirt representing the cage.

A collection with impact, there was dramatic contrast in the large solid shapes and soft knitted textures.

A minimal colour combination of black and pale pink symbolizes the aspects bitter and sweet.

To end the show with a bang, the sound of military drums blasted through the space.

NiuNiu Chou of Chinese brand MRHUA MRSHUA presented a feast for the eyes with the ‘Vintage Soldier’ collection, a Military styled colour collision with Pop Art fabric dyeing.

Fitted tailored pieces adorned with lace, tassels, and embroidery, featured unique patterns and vibrant clashing colours.

Gold buckles, plaited aguiliette rope, and toy soldier hats invoked feelings of playfulness.

A salute to psychedelic soldiers, a strong collection with brilliant visual appeal.
