What you need to know before going to a fashion show
You visit a fashion show dressed all nice and sophisticated, sit down, take out your phone & start looking for your target. The judgement day has come.
Meanwhile it takes approximately a year to prepare for an art school and 3 to 4 years to finish fashion design studies. Usually making a collection takes at least half a year, minimizes your social life to a bare minimum and soaks up all your finances to maximum (this doesn’t count if the the company you are working for is called Dior).
Despite all that, you also have to know how to sew, have a decent comprehension of aesthetics, sense of proportion and textile & signature style, altogether understanding of how the fashion world functions.
In places like fashion shows it is easy to take the role of an ‘EXPERT’ and start chopping designer’s heads just because it didn’t suit your personal taste and opinion. So having all this in mind, the team picked ‘PRETTY UGLY FAVOURITES’ from a local fashion event in their native Lithuania. We listed things that caught our eyes and attention & got creative with collages below.
fashion duo Viktorija ROSENBERG & Paulius Leonas 'anti.Fashion'
Pink ameba-like jumper to have fun daily.
Colourful ‘I’m-not-ready-to-get-out-of-bed-so-I’m-taking-it-with me’ combo.
Black knitted tight dress, second black skin, to dance at a techno party or to wear daily.
LIUCIJA Kvasyte ‘Be Prepared’
Shout out to our favourite lithuanian designer Liucija! Ultra fashionable boy&girl scouts more like ‘be prepared AND in style’ - ready to take over the world in fashion.
Foxy girl scout just got back from the flight to Paris and is TOTALLY PREPARED for her shift.
Tigress from the street jungle bushes she’s always watching you and ready to attack!!! Or prepare a soup if you got cold in the woods.
She’s the gentlewoman of the scout squad, effortless but always strictly on time for the morning scout salutation!
Morta Nakaite ‘The conversation that never happened'
Soft, fluffly, bright combo. Ready to dive in the dream world.
Vaida Januskeviciute 'Boredom'
Marie Antoinette in a red dress, just strolling down the avenue or a royal palace garden in princess pj’s feeling those boring vibes but looking fab af.
zivile Aleknaviciute 'Society on the edge of the world'
Looking as a fashion design warrior with her woven textile armor ready for the battle field or busy day at the studio.
Lesson learned: every time looking at an artwork, no matter where you are - in a gallery or a fashion show, think deeper. Before judging ask yourself why the artist chose this material and why he picked violet after red.
Only after raising these questions, start using your imagination and envision yourself in those mesmerising outfits - it’s so much fun & good for your inner child’s health!
