Desirée Slabik – a German fashion and textile designer currently based in London – graduated last year from London College of Fashion and presented her final Fall Winter 2016 collection “Life After People” during the latest edition of London Fashion Week as a part of the LCF Show. The collection is based on the post-apocalyptic, future perspective vision of the world like “What would our planet look like when our population dissapears?”.
“The starting point and at the same time the key image I had in mind and to which I referred back for every visual aspect of the collection is based on a white clean architecture captured by a coloured firework of flora growing all over the human constructions and creating a paradise of colours. The human beings have vanished from earth. Finally the vegetation has its territory back. It is about the postive power of life and the symboisis of every organism living next to each other. My story and scenario is inspired by the documentary “Life After People”, a television series, released in 2008, in which scientists, structural engineers, and other experts speculate about what might become of Earth should humanity instantly disappear.”
