Ukrainian designer Lara Tomashchuk's AW 2014-15 collection under her design label of Lara Quint is a fusion of the 1950's silhouette with a Japanese aesthetic in a collection hinged on the concept of a heroine, " a brave female warrior holding weapons in her arms, protecting her sanctity clad in signs and symbols from toe to crown."

"I concentrated on the driven, knotted and fixed material on the structure. Depending on the shibori technique the material could be made rigid and flexible at the same time which changed the properties of the materials used so far. I created the form with this process, and I have created flexible clothing that can be changed by the movement." Bakos Boglárka

"Body Gloss is about the interaction between body language and non-verbal dresscodes, that people use to express their identity and gender visual. The construction and choice of materials for this collection, is based on stereotyped and recognizable perceptions, of what we connect with masculine and feminine fragments." Lene Nymark
Lene Nymark has some very interesting projects and I really enjoyed her fashion illustrations and sketches. Lene has just graduated from Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

Valeska Jasso Collado graduated from Westminster University this year with a collection in which she choose to combine unusual materials to create new textiles with which to form her structured garments.
"I chose foam because it would make the voluminous but clean shapes I had in mind possible, It also meant I didn't have to build any kind of frame or stuffing which are more common methods to create volume for garments."
