Merel Bos, isolated collective uniqueness
isolated collective uniquenessMy collection is about the fact that people today seem less and less interested in joining a group. Everybody wants to be unique. Ironically, this causes isolation. I believe we shouldn’t shy away from forming groups – we just need to create a new kind of group: one in which everyone can be unique yet still share a collective ideal.
Fabian Bredt, relatable fluid identities
relatable fluid identitiesMy collection 'Identity 3.0' is about celebrating a more fluid understanding of a visual identity. The internet has enabled us to be the most plural youth movement in history. This idea of a group identity I want to show by spreading every silhouette of my collection across three models.
Ruby de Bruijn, detailed new beginnings
detailed new beginningsMy collection is about a new kind of beginning. This new beginning contains influences of modern minimalism and our own Dutch folklore. Inspired by the old fishermen and the little boys who act like grown-ups I made a collection that’s clean and simple. But with handmade details such as weaving, knitting and embroidery.
Nikki Duijst, anonymous fear for spotlights
anonymous fear for spotlightsMy collection ‘As We Seek Our Face’ is about the exploration of my personal fear for being in the spotlight versus portraying oneself. With today’s social media we are automatically pushed into presenting ourselves as extraordinary personalities. So I started thinking about a strong wish for anonymity. That’s why my silhouettes hint at the influence of an interaction between femininity, seclusion and exposing yourself.
Olivier Jehee, eclectic tolerated power
eclectic tolerated powerMy collection is about dominance and power, and the clashing worlds in which I can recognize these two elements. There’s the decadent, luxurious side of power, with references like couture, Stephen Tennant and 18th century kings, but I can also see power and dominance within subcultures like the punks and skinheads. These influences come along with a more agressive, raw protest feeling.
