Edward Cuming is a fashion designer from Sydney, currently studying at IED Barcelona. His collection, entitled “Motion Sickness“, stems from a personal trip to Marrakech taken earlier this year. A three day expedition to the Sahara Desert exposed me to climates and environments so heavily contradictory to each ones previous.
The nature in which the Land manages to still hold a mystical sense of permanence and unity had me perplexed. Colour is being used throughout the garments to contrast and harmonise simultaneously with a unified selection of modern fabrics heat bonded and manipulated for full, masculine silhouettes. Shapes loosely linked to traditional Moroccan wear build staples for the collection and blocks on which pieces are able to highlight and accentuate the in built dynamism and layering through the looks.
Last night at Pier 36 in New York, dancers, beatboxers, whistlers and musicians came together to celebrate the runway debut of KENZO x H&M with a spectacular show directed by fashion legend Jean-Paul Goude.
