Just a few high lights on some of our designers showcasing:
Stephan Russell: An ultra luxurious clothing and accessories line founded in 2021 in New York. Having an eclectic approach through working as a fashion model, designer’s assistant, accessory buyer, design consultant and eventually independent designer was a decade in the making. Coming from a family of antique dealers and interior designers, the exposure to fine textiles and original aesthetics was an early education that would create a discerning eye. Stephan Russell began by walking on Saville Row in London late one evening during Fashion Week, which gave way to the inspiration to use British fabric for an American brand. The first blazer sample branched into dress shirts, made by the same workshop Hollywood film makers use for their period pieces. He is continuously inspired when visiting London, New York & Los Angeles, his favourite trio of style capitals
Zaira Christa: Young age of 18 years is launching their very first couture collection on our platform. Zaira is studying music at Oxford University. With musical creative talent and a flair for fashion, Zaira’s collection will bring fashion and music together with their creations.
AU10TIC: Charlotte Geschier, creator of AU10TIC, works under the stage name Miss C and has been active as a model in the art and fashion world, both at home and abroad. Those experiences taught her how hard those worlds are and how authenticity
often loses out to the artificial ideal image
determined by the few. Fashion determines what to wear and how to look. The emperor’s clothes, but in reverse. Clothes without an emperor. Authenticity is under attack. Nothing is what it seems.
Charlotte founded the non-profit organisation JC Creative House, with the aim of having a safe environment to choose one’s own authentic creative direction and thus be a role model for authenticity.
This segment questions Who are you? Who are you when you are not seen? Who are you when you are being seen? Are you authentic? AU10TIC is an artistic project at the crossroads of art and fashion that addresses the issue of authenticity, in particular what the challenges are of expressing yourself as a human being (through clothing or body adornment) in relation to your environment. AU10TIC talks about the importance of authenticity for ourselves and for society as a whole.
To deliver the message of AU10TIC, Charlotte designed six characters, six “beauties”. Each character expresses a question and confronts the viewer with how we view and experience each other.
The Trapped Beauty is a character inspired by the Paduang, the “giraffe women”. Trapped in tradition and culture? Refine, reshape or mutilate are the questions being asked.
The (Western) Botox Beauty is a persona that refers to the supposed ideals of beauty
pursued with the extreme use of botulinum toxin (botox) to hide ageing skin and/or
change body shapes. The Question is , are we denying reality?
The Oriental Beauty is a character inspired by Asian culture. Bound “lotus” feet, black teeth as a beauty ideal. The relativity of aesthetics is a subject here, as much as the
pressure of tradition.
The Persian Beauty, inspired by the Middle East, Charlotte asks where the urge to decorate ourselves with gold and exclusive adornments comes from. Are we showing our power? Does it give us power?
The Tribal Beauty; Two characters are inspired by tribal cultures. To emphasise spirituality and (super) faith. The models have characteristics of the Apatani, Mursi, Karo and the Maori.
