Flat Fashion

10th September 2014

With the onslaught of womenswear during New York Fashion Week and more to come from London, Paris and Milan this project is a breath of fresh air.

A clothing collection based on the archetypal silhouette and fabric of traditional menswear designer Camiel Fortgens a graduate from Design Academy Eindhoven explores a "cut copy paste" approach.

Detaching from a world over saturated by trends that come and go and challenging the contemporary culture of 'copy and paste' she has created a series of odd, flat, yet recognisable pieces that push the boundaries of both fashion and menswear.

Working with archetypal pieces - a t shirt, jeans, coat and shirt she has used stiff materials that enhance the forms that appear to float around the body rather than contour and fit.
