ArtEZ 2013 show

This fantastic student of ArtEz made the audience curious by placing gray-colored blocks (looking like stones) on the runway. Not much later, her models calmly choose their position and kept looked in the audience. Stephanie Baechler used materials as stone, oresa and gems to inspire her in making her collection. Studing geometry and various natural substances, she eventually choose rough woolen fabric lead and turned out to be amazing!

Ophelia has a Dream

Japanese designer Mihara Yasuhiro was inspirered by Ophelia, an 1851 painting of a red-haired Victorian maiden dead in a babbling stream, by John Everett Millais. When he first met the painting he was only 13 years old and made a big impression on him! “I remember falling for her pink cheeks and hollow gaze,” recalls Mihara.

Ophelia served as the inspiration for Yasuhiro’s SS12 collection. Together with photographer Paolo Roversi, he made an ethereal film, called Ophelia Has a Dream, which confronts Life and Death. In the film Ophelia wears a Mihara’s kimono en is surrounded by butterflies and flowers.

On Friday, December 7 2012, Ophelia Has a Dream will be shown at Tate Britain’s ongoing series Late at Tate. Also the real Ophelia by Millais will be shown.
