“Ouverture” by CENTRO
Sergio Pastor and Ismael Alcaina, new directors of the CENTRO Bachelor’s Degree in Textile and Fashion Design, were charged with overseeing the Ouverture collection, an incubation space for future fashion designers.
Ouverture called for four designers who graduated from the Bachelor’s Degree in Textile and Fashion Design program to present eight complete looks including accessories and other elements that reflected their respective identities and imaginary.
Sobre los volcanes de la luna: Life’s fight against death.
Leather, laser-shorn fleece, wool drapery and sublimated neoprene.
“In search of new silhouettes and patterns, there were garments made up of numerous pieces, as well as laser-cut finishes and other interventions designed to achieve more interesting results: garments made of hair, to generate different textures; knee-length coats and skirts where natural and artificial materials such as leather and neoprene are united; dresses with abundant cuts that can frame the figure; and even some pieces in prints that create a new outcome,” Pandelo remarked.
Steam Engine: The Industrial Revolution, Victorian Fashion and Science Fiction
Leather, mesh, wool, georgette and plumes. Accessories in metal and wood.
“The Steam Engine collection is largely made up of long skirts and dresses in a various materials that—complemented by the collection’s distinctive accessories—can become looks that evolve depending on their use-occasion,” says Cordero.
Squilibrio: Disorders of the mind and cathartic processes
Wool felt, cotton/linen, cotton twill, leather and denim.
“The collection takes shape through the evolution of three basic menswear pieces: shirts, pants and jackets/coats. The proposed dialogue with them calls for modifications of form and volume. Silhouettes are lengthened and widened to create new proportions within traditional forms,” Ceballos declared.
Speculating with Architects: Imaginary spaces, construction, possible responses.
Gabardinas de algodón, paños de lana, terciopelo, piel de durazno, chiffon, tul y aplicaciones en vinil.
“The collection is largely made up of cape-like garments that are the outcome of a series of experiments carried out with geometric patterns and seeing how they can be adapted to the human form; the emerging silhouettes were relaxed and voluminous, with fabric folds and fall; to balance the collection’s looks I decided to integrate elements such as skorts, shorts and jumpsuits that were designed with simple, clean and sober lines to crate a contemporary, outgoing and youthful image,” Heredia commented.
