Formal Formation

The collection was inspired by tailcoat and formal eveningwear through the last 200 years. The elegance, sophisticated technology of formal eveningwear and restrictive effect of clothing mattress inspired me to start working on the collection. It is all about changing, almost losing the shape of the tailcoat and black suit and reinterpreting classical beauty.

The used textiles are mostly furniture fabrics that I rescued from ending up in a landfill. I chose them for their interesting texture to show the pros of nontraditional materials in fashion.
