The innovative feel of Sylvio Giardina’s significance for Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collection is outlined by the fascination of the silhouette reinvention. By morphing the shapes and volumes, the designer creates a newfangled vision of clothing merging his fascinations of Gaetano Pesce‘s works of the late Sixties as well as Steve McCurry‘s portrait photos. The collection conveys recreation of the classic designs by implementing fresh fashion rhythms along with the feeling of vibration. The line is accentuated with the sophisticated fabrics including wool jersey, expanded polyethylene and organic structures as a must as well a soft refinement of mohair, velvet and wool. The pallete of colors is balanced between South-Eastern Asia shades as the sign of great fascination into Steve McCurry‘s portrait photography revealing black, dove-color, bronze, violet, ivory, turquoise, copper-red, beige, air force blue and different shades of green from another, strictly fashionable angle.

The electrifying collection with the equally captivating title “Electric Youth” under the cutting-edge signature of a fashion designer Angelos Frentzos unveils the concept of neon light. Within its significance in our lifestyle and perception, the fluid light covers many possible areas ranging from everyday routine to the works of art. Since the first appearance of neon light in London, in Piccadilly Circus celebrates the centenary, we may clearly notice that neon became a part of our lives by encountering the vivid palette of colors on the streets, advertising , common light systems as well as visual productivity and creative fields of fashion, art and photography.
The collection through the title and concept expresses admiration in neon impact and its rejoicing of lights. The mood focuses on the hi-profile of sportswear – edgy and cultural with the hint of playfulness. There is also a continuation of gothic alternative that is a common denominator of Angelos Frentzos’ collections as well as architectural feel of clothing with not so oversize kind of shape. Take a look!

Cecilia Ajayi “The Illusion of Perspectives”
The emerging fashion designer Cecilia Ajayi distinguishes with the conceptual intake into the intricate construction of the knitwear craft. Her fascination about the cubist perception and architectural feel of the clothing are elaborately fused into the concept of her Graduate collection entitled “The Illusion of Perspectives”.
The complex harmony of the collection is visible through the detailed and well planned yet elaborate pattern of the knitwear clothing. With the three-dimensional sense, the garment transforms into the attention-grabbing fragmented structures along with the exceptional use of color palette and their infinite illusion of various perspectives to capture.
Focusing on the cubist art and its captivating characteristics like fragmentation, gradual color blends and multiplicity of viewing, Cecilia successfully endeavored to depict cubist art’s significance by means of the knitwear techniques composing an innovative collection of artistically-inclined, sophisticated and feminine clothing. The attention to detail merged with the creativity forms Cecilia’s signature style portraying her dedicated interest in conceptual fashion inspired by the sculptural and architectural influence. What is more, the collection illustrates both her credo in the craftsmanship of clothing and her endless ability to create three dimensional textiles.
After graduation from Brighton University Cecilia was the winner of numerous prestigious awards including ‘The Clothworkers Foundation Award’ for her knitted fabrics, as well as winning first prize in a collaboration project with Nano Force. She also worked for knitwear designer Juliana Sissions at the Victoria and Albert Museum. This precious experience assisted her in precise understanding how to express her outstanding fashion signature through the synergy of art and contemporary textiles with a wearable factor.
