"The unintentional styles of street children near suburban Moscow is the main focus. Oversized, ill-fitted and layered clothes on these orphans are keys to survive in cold Russian winter. However, the unexpected mixture of materials and the contrast between synthetic and organic textures from these found clothes are pieces of art and love. Based on the idea of oversized clothes on homeless children, Ximon deconstructed and re-patterned many garments from Salvation Army. Different ways of sandwiching/bonding fabrics as well as constructing with found materials such as trash bags and cardboards are also explored during the development." Ximon Lee

The video shows an interview with Eugenia Morpurgo, who was a mentor of the Fashion System BIO 50 team.
This example shows the wonderful work created in Slovenia. The intention behind Bio 50 is that the idea is going to spread to many other countries to encourage and engage designers. It focuses particularly on more sustainable design and creativity from the materials readily available in the geographical location. Bio 50 also re-energises local identity, tradition and culture that has been eroded by globalised production.

Spanish designer Leandro Cano makes fashion that is very unusual and often reminds you of other aspects of design. Because of the heavy adornment, pattern and silhouette of some of his Ánima collection I am reminded of highly decorative vases. Indeed these garments have applied ceramic details made in Leandro's home town of Jaen, in Andalucía.

"The Archetype collection is inspired by the Orthodox Christian iconographic canons. The magnetic conventionalism of the characters and graphics is inherently the universal code of spirituality. Archetype is a primordial symbol, an initial dogma of consciousness. A creative mind that aspires to the original truth finds the fundamental module for its subjective perfection’s structure. Elementary forms turn into rhythmical and constructional designs. Eclectic combinations of textiles, raw hems and exposed seam allowances contouring the silhouettes reflect the dialectical matter of the pieces – as a key to the synergy of a person wearing them and the innermost essence of the universe."

"My thesis collection explores the notion that an evolutionary perfection is unattainable because standards of perfection are always in flux. I design for a woman constantly changing, one who is never settled on one way of living." Justin ChuJustin Chu's clothes are full of dynamic cuts, silhouettes and drama, beauty and elegance Justin won the Empowering Imagination Competition this year at Parsons The New School for Design.
