ESMOD Berlin International University of Art for Fashion has announced that INDEPENDENCE, the Graduate Collections from the Bachelor Program – Fashion Design 2015, will take place in July in the lead up to the Berlin Fashion Week SS15.
The collections have been critiqued by an International Jury of professionals, in order to give the students industry standard feedback, and also facilitates networking for potential opportunities post-graduation. Members of the jury this year include Susanne Stangl, Modeliste, Mulberry, United Kingdom; Catherine Le Goff, Editor, ARTE Culture, France; Damir Doma, CEO Damir Doma, France (ESMOD Berlin Alumnus); Stefan Siegel, Founder, Not Just A Label, United Kingdom; Ulrike Möslinger, International Marketing Director, Galeries Lafayette, France and Christine Walter-Bonini, ESMOD International Group, France.
This year, the show will be held in a new location Vollgutlager in Neukölln. INDEPENDENCE presents work from the 20 most outstanding collections from the current academic year. The organisers say that, “Inspiration for the graduate collections ranges from the cultural, the political and the personal. A VIP audience will see an exploration of form and volume, a redefining of silhouettes and material transformations.”
