Certainly, none of the major events in the fashion world can escape Colourcake’s attention. In search of inspiration and fresh talents, last Friday our team attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Amsterdam. We got a chance to be present at the magnificent show of Lisa Konno, a fashion designer from Amsterdam.
Lisa presented her new “Yours Truly” collection made of scarves. Sharp designs and a smart combination of striking colours gave each garment somewhat edgy, yet rather reserved and modest look.
However, the main intention behind Lisa’s collection was to invite the audience to be part of the process of making a garment. It aimed to make others experience the true value of clothing by involving wearers in the production of their wardrobe. For that reason, immediately after the show, Lisa Konno shared a package with the main idea of the collection with visitors. It contained the pattern pieces and instructions on how to create the central blouse of her collection. By taking this step, the designer intended to share a strong message – “I believe that involving you in making my blouse will make you appreciate it for a long time”, said Lisa Konno. Truly impressive!
Driven by the urge to walk a different path and challenge the current fashion system, Lisa Konno continues looking for innovating ways to handle designs and keeps experimenting with new techniques to develop fashion for the future to come. Looking forward to new ideas and designs that will shake the fashion industry!
