LIVIA TANG- AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

LIVIA TANG AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

The special bond between siblings, celebration of brotherhood and sisterhood, and japanesetextiles. This is a spirit of the collection, which originated in historic iages of twins.

The starting point of the collection was historic images of sisters and brothers. The combination of masculine fabrics like corduroy with femiie lame woven jacquard and substainable fabrics, such as linen an recycled viscose, to communicate long – lasting attachment.

The collection presents an idea of a twin look, with double sided fabrics, indigo tweed, lilac woolen cotton blends houndstooth pattern, cotton blend and ivory linen jacquard. All the beading and trimmings are created with natural materials and processes, mainly jade and shell, cord used as straps and fastenings.

With each element, from floral tapestry and patchwork to traditional weaving used in top stitching, the designer cherishes tenacious relationships between siblings.

BORA AKSU – AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

 

”Once you’ve been in space, you appreciate how fragile the Earth is” – Valentina Tereshkova

A/W19 Boru Aksu draws inspiration from the first woman to go into space.

Valentina Tereshkova beacme the first woman to fly in space in 1963. On June 1963, she spent almost three days in space and orbited Earth 48 times in her capsule. While TV viewers saw her smiling face and her logbook floating in front of her, they didn’t realize that the flight had almost turned into tragedy, a fact that remained classified fo r40 years. Tereshova went on to graduate from the Zhuykosky Air Force Engineering Academy in 1969 and earned a degree in Technical Science. She then toured the world promoting science and feminism. Valentina serves as a role model for all women throughout the world who wish to achieve their dreams.

 

In a collection dedicated to her, Bora Aksu creates garments that reflect Valentina’s space trip drawing on contrasts of her early life growing up in a small village.

The iridescent orgnza and tulle fabrics appear ethereal in texture, aiming to create garments that react to microgravity in a new and completely different way. Weightlessness is key. The combination of soft feminine fabrics and structured shapes add a resounding sense of romance to the strong, bold silhouettes. The astronaut manifests itself in coats , boxed jackets and puffer jackets.

Layering is used aas a tool to create interesting textures without adding heaviness. To create this layering effect. Bora designed very specific embroideries on velvets, tulles and lace.

Hand embroidered and knitted hed pieces are created by Liria Pristine.

Pearl Jewellery and avant – garde sunglasses are created by Halo and Co, inspired by the Space Age.

‘I believe a woman should always remain a woman and nothing feminine should be alien to her. At the same time, I strongly feel that no work done by a woman, can enter into conflict with her ancient wonderful mission’, to love, to be loved.” – Valentina Tereshkova 1970
