On July 2nd Instituto Marangoni unveiled NEW ERA, a pioneering event enabling the ten best fashion designers of the School to showcase their collections through a bespoke and visionary fashion show. www.istitutomarangoni.com
Held in London’s Lindley Hall, the showcase reflected the idea of the contamination between fashion, technology and the environment presenting a unique platform for the next generation to launch the trends of the future. Each designer conveyed their own personal views and inspirations taking influence from all over the world, from Chinese traditions to Italian heritage and performance arts, through historic and futuristic lenses alike.
Natalia Esteve Garcia Ancira was a personal standout, presenting both menswear and womenswear with dystopian punk inspired tailoring at the forefront (large safety pins a must), in total contrast to Arian Krasniqi’s vibrant and flamboyant biker chicks complete in motorcycle helmets, pastel tulle dresses and neon sock boots. Va va vroom hunni. Whilst Ao Lun He explored artistic patterns in clashing abstract print ensembles and Rebecca Shamoon gave us major soldier vibes of theatrical proportions. If this is what the wardrobe of the future looks like, roll on 2020. Here. For. It.
