Fashion Forecast Book

Textile Book for the Fashion of Winter 09/10

Taking the theme "Wedding" as a starting point, I selected intuitively images that inspired me. I realized that I was especially fascinated in pictures that contain both the emotional and romantic aspect of a wedding but also a certain banality and uglyness.
It reflects my ambivalent attitude towards the meaning of a wedding:

"The traditional way of celebrating a wedding has lost its importance. Many of my friends don't want to get married at all. Or some just want to have a simple barbecue rather than an exceptional celebration.
For me, a wedding is still a really special occasion with romantic and nostalgic emotions. But at the same time I'm making fun of it."

Having the contradiction "Beautiful Uglyness" in mind I was gathering materials and creating new ones until my Fashion Statement was complete.
