It’s important to feel proud of your home and it’s fashion scene

Yesterday, second year students at Beckmans College of Design showcased their different takes on experimental fashion – thirteen mini collections of three outfits each were presented to invited press. There’s always something special with these shows, as creativity and innovation are in defined focus. The show in its whole symbolized norm-breaking attributes where everything perfect was questioned. The students used fashion as a tool for experimentation, and the result was a mix of fantasy and reality, combined with references from the future and the past.

Make it last attended the show, and talked to Siah Javaheri, creator of the collection “Nomadized”. Siah explained that her collection has references from everywhere in the world, as we live in a digital era and are portable, like modern nomads who travel a lot and create personal styles by mixing references from all over the world. What caught our eye with Siahs pieces were the materials, and we asked her which materials she likes to work with.

– I like sustainable materials. Materials that lasts over time. I work a lot with silk and I also use recycled materials and waste pieces where I try to give them new life but with some new approaches. The embroidery for instance are made from plastic bottles. I like the creativity that comes out of working with materials that are recycled.
