Material has been given new life and a contemporary expression has been created in fashion students’ debut collections. On November 28, the Fashion Program’s year 2 collections will be presented in a display at Beckman’s Design Academy. Experiment focus collections The collections have been developed in a course focusing on material experiments and various textile techniques. – Experimenting with materials and textile techniques opens up new creative ideas and methods. It develops the artistic mind and creates the conditions for working unrestrained and open-minded with its own design language and expression, says Manush Mirzakhanjan, associate professor and course manager at the Fashion Program. A common starting point is also the theme of Stages. The students have freely interpreted what stages are or can be and the collections touch on a broad spectrum of topics – everything from identity creation to the different stages of aging skin, to the radical transformation we have to do to meet the climate challenges of the future.
