fashion or costume designer?

14 Sep

 

Hoy ha pasado algo grande. Mí amiga Magda me ha mostrado la página de una diseñadora austriaca LENA HOSCHEK. Estoy tan feliz.

La duda que me surge mirando su colección es la siguiente ¿es diseñadora de moda o vestuario? Sin duda, en varios de sus diseños podrían aparecer  las personajes de Mad Men.

Aquí viene la explicación que cito desde su página: “Sus colecciones no siguen las tendencias ni el concepto general de lo que está considerado cool, simplemente reflejan lo que la ha fascinado desde su niñez: el ideal de belleza de mujer de los años 40 y 50, trabajo artesanal, alta costura, materiales y cortes tradicionales pero también rock ‘n’ roll, musica punk, tatuajes, chicos malos y coches rápidos.”

Antes de lanzar su propia marca en el año 2006, asistió a Vivienne Westwood en su estudio de Londeres. Actualmente vende en Austria, Alemania, Holanda, Suiza y España y desfila en Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin.

Fashion or costume designer?

Today something big happened. My friend Magda showed me a web page of Austrian designer Lena HOSCHEK. I’m so happy too see this!

At the same time I’m admiring her designs, I’m asking myself: Is she a fashion or costume designer? Certainly, in several of her dresses characters from  Mad Man’s may appear.

Here comes the explanation I quote from her page: “Her collections do not follow trends or the general conception of ‘cool’, they are simply a reflection of what has fascinated her since her childhood: the female ideal of the 40s and 50s, craftsmanship, high-end tailoring, traditional materials and patterns but also rock ‘n’ roll and punk music, tattoos, bad guys and fast cars.”

Before launching her own label in 2006, she assisted Vivienne Westwood in London. Currently she sales in Austria, Germany, Holland, Switzerland and Spain and shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
