Here’s one photo of each outfit of Natja K. Ethical Collection Fall/Winter 2014/2015. Photoshoot on last week went well despite of short showers of rain. There’s much layers on each outfit and here’s only one photo of each except brocade parka winter coat outfit, which has under it red and black shorts, shirt and mesh jacket. There’s some tops that can’t be seen in these photos still at all.
I have plan to do a website for the collection later this year, where will be more photos of each outfit. There’s still that one if, that if I get some more important work project, it goes first and now I start to work finally for art exhibition for what I got small bursary. I also have to renew my portfolio and I’m aware that executing a website for the collection can move even for next year.
An idea behind the collection was to use mainly remnants and materials, what I had in my stock for a long time. Outfits are different subculture characters and mixes of them with a retro vibe. There are girls who are going to school ballroom parties, biker girl, 50′s girl, goths, hippies, mixes of them and punk and baseball jacket girls with different music genre indications. I’m satisfied how I managed to combine this kind of hodgepodge of materials and colors to have some scheme in the collection. I used a lot of black leather remnants and recycled leather, black lace, similar kind of silhouette for skirts, splash printing and subculture characters. For under the brocade parka I had to made outfit that fits with the coat from materials that I still had and that’s a joker outfit of the collection.
Implementing of the outfits took a lot of time, because there’s so much pieces used to put some of the garments together. Cutting, ironing buckram and sewing time was multiple for doing cloth from normal pieces. Also dye and print whole fabrics and sewing by hand took a lot of time, but it was very rewarding and important to me to do this collection. I have developed earlier mind, what thinks and designs fashion nearly continuously and it was good to accomplish my mission at times. After achieving one mission it feels better to move on into another mission.
