DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
NEW LOOK?

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Fashion Sculptures

INSPIRATION:
The first thing that stood out when researching designers that are compatible to Steven is that lots off them are giving into the fast fashion system and are starting to make there exclusive couture collections more wearable every season. Also the growing quantity within these collections is a notible fact. Irritated by this giving into the system by rolemodels to steven, he wanted to make a statement against this system. Let couture be art, not fashion.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Its time for a new look on couture. Couture, witch is stuck in fast fashion, is giving into commercialism and trends with the effect that new designers dont feel comfortable jioning this fast fashion system. Now me as a new designer is going to discover a new way of making couture art again. Im going to show my way of making what I think is art with the ambition to inspire others to see a new way of slowing down fashion and starting to see craftmanship and love in garments again.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Collection includes four sculptures

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researched my point of view, the history of couture, photography, documentairy, modern couture, the fast fashion system and known silhouettes and techniques.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was to find the right way of making sculpture and fashion come together. Also the search for the bizarreness in poses leaded to a lot of experiment with the human body.

NAME:
STEVENVANDERYT

PROFILE:
This collection was made as a graduation project for the HKU School for the Arts Utrecht. Instead of presenting the collection at the regular graduation show, the collection was presented as a installation. This provided the element of slowing down and really take in the garment with all its details. The school provided a exhibition room in a old office building in the center of Utrecht. The floors and walls were all bear and you could see the concrete. The sculptures were put in absurd poses and were hanging on black frames. Working with these absurd poses all the looks looked really uncomfortable and made the statement come true that couture shouldn't be functional or comfortable. Also by making complete sculptures the collection showed more than just fashion. It made the collection come alive and instead of thinking of them as clothes they were considered almost like characters. It was a school's first that a fashion designer distanced himself from the regular fashion show and only wanted to exhibit his work. It took some time to convince them but during the exhibition they really appreciated the guts and respected the original way of presenting a graduation collection. After the exhibition the school expressed their appreciation one more time and said it was a new way on showing personal skills and they thought it really captured the concept of the collection. The school is proud of their sense of freedom within design and really pushes their students to get as free and creative as the designer wants to be.
