I´VR – Isabel Vollrath – Les Misérables AW17
I‘ VR ISABEL VOLLRATH, the graduate of Berlin-Weißensee School of Art, who has been awarded at national and international contests, does not stick to the idea that fashion is only clothing. The designer’ s styles are border-crossing, three-dimensional sketches, collages, objects of sculpting, political statements as well as cultural travel reports.
AW2016: “Les Misérables” ! Heavy coats and “dresscoats”, suits of armor, bulky jackets, knobby surfaces, as well as fragile, almost shabby, broken elements. The “Storm of the Bastille”. Cosette. Camille Claudel. Jeanne d’Arc. Anna Karenina. Revolution! A tribute.
I‘ VR ISABEL VOLLRATH stands for recognizable accents that merge fashion and art. The signature silhouettes are structural, abstract pieces, yet caressing the female figure, visualizing the designer’s passion for extraordinary, provocative materials and high-end details. The collections, handcrafted to perfection, sway between upcycling, high-tech and the undeniable craft background in bespoke tailoring.
