The Synthetic Oceans / Alba Prat

Posted in Design - Fashion by * FORMAKERS

What is better than discovering promising talents, who despite their often limited professional experience, yet they have a capacity to create, equal to that of recognized and experienced creators.

Creating a collection is not just about making impressive clothes. Neither just about making garments that are comfortable and easy to wear.

The starting point is always the inspiration.

The question to be answered is always whether the outcome reflects the inspiration in the best possible manner. The cuts, the fabrics, the materials, the colors, the embellishments, they all add a little something to conveying the starting point; the inspirational stimulus.

“Synthetic Oceans” collection by Alba Prat ; a promising, final year, fashion design student from the University of Künste, Berlin, represents the transition that the aquatic world experiences as a result of the industrialization era. As thousands of tons of plastic are dumped in the ocean every year, the seabed has been transformed into a contaminated and lifeless place, where sea creatures are struggling to adapt to these non-natural circumstances.

The endangered living organisms must adapt or else will die.

The collection conveys this ‘cold and dark atmosphere where the beauty of the mutations and the defense mechanisms that its inhabitants embrace is to be seen’..
