Winner: Gabrielle Foulis
Runner-up: Nangamso Dana
Having grown up in the city, Gabrielle Foulis regards concrete as the quintessence of city living. Concrete symbolises life and community. Solid and durable, it serves as the protective housing of the community. As our society changes and grows, we influence the city’s infrastructure and thus its concrete appearance. To a greater extent, moreover, the city and its buildings influence us and our fashion decisions and styles.
The Art of Destruction is inspired by the deconstruction of buildings, and specifically the lives of these structures. This mini-collection interprets the concept of deconstruction through the lens of Japanese garment design. This contemporary Japanese style mirrors the great, monumental buildings of history, as both have clean lines and convey elegance.
The materials and processes include: linen painted with cement; bronze details (leather and buckles); cement buttons; wire mesh; a chiffon chenille technique to produce a textured effect; and broken-down print graphic.
