GYOYUNI KIMCHOE AW15

The Thanatos Expedition A/W 2015

Label GyoYuni Kimchoe is composed of designers  Gyo Kim and Ravensbourne Yuni Choe.  Their philosophy os one of respect for life and nature and each season they create sustainably rebellious pieces with faux leathers and furs.

They aim to broaden the perception of fashion whilst simultaneously injecting references to nature.

This season we saw a muted color palette of grey blues and spring greens.

Gyo Yuni AW15 collection titled The Thanatos Expedition started from a thought about the links between science and shamanism.  Inspired by the concept of travel into space and vital worlds combined with the Mongolian Shamans is of their own devices to travel to the spirit world.

The Thanatos Expedition Collection poses the question, what if science could also take is to the after life?  How far will technology go?….

The collection showcases a contrast between high-tech materials such as air-mesh, neoprene and outdoor ropes that nod back to the scientific visions of space travel.   Tweed, faux fur and wool were some of the fabrics used for this collection.

 

 

Vivien Chan at Fashion Week SS15

Born in Notthingham, she studies illustration and animation at Kingston University.
During London Fashion Week Spring/Sumer 2015 we were able to cover backstage for some of the shows at Fashion Scout held at Freemasons Hall in London. Backstage is a totally different experience because you get to meet other creatives that help put together the shows. It was there, where we first saw Viviene Chan she was sketching away.

FAM IRVOLL Collection ‘Call the Exterminator’ was unveiled on Monday September 16th at the Prince Regent Room at Fashion Scout 2013.

The room was arranged in a way that displayed the models wearing the latest from Fam Irvoll collection in separate stations, the lighting was low and a mood of mystery was present.

Livingfash: Fam Irvoll Collection Presentation at Fashion Scout, Sept 2013

As guests, admired the models at their respective units,the music played a quite usual tune for these kind of things; that was until the lights got darker and the music was accompanied by dancers. It was a Shocker to some of the guests, who were not anticipating the girl group to show up and dance to the “Exterminate” music and rattle the model’s enclosures and their disposition.

To a new beat and under a new light, things seem quite different, the juxtaposition of street culture and fashion can generate a very interesting combination.

Seeing at first, the clothes seem quite interesting, the prints, the choice of fabrics and the design, i.e the skirt and blazer seems quite street wearable for most of us, but who can keep their eyes away from the body wrapping dress, it seems like something for a music video where one can be the star.

Fam Irvoll likes to surprise, and this way to show her collection really surprised and dared the audience to take a closer look at her line. She dares us to look at her fabrics and the choices she has taken in the making process. A very open and powerful presentation.

Like the animals selected on the fabrics used for the collection, the models were exposed, surrounded and rattled by the ‘Exterminator’ performers. Sometimes, the methaphor is a powerful visual performance like this one, in which the critters/creatures turn out to be the objects of interest.
