Tata Christiane at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2012

This collection is inspired by the book “One Hundred Years of Solitude” (original Title: “Cien anos de Soledad”, 1967) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and by extension inspired by the expression of magical realism, created by the German art critic Franz Roh in 1925.
It is expressing a genre of fiction, in which magical elements blend into the reality, to create another reality. Reality and fiction are indistinguishable.

Theo L. D’haen in his book “Magical realism and postmodernism” describes it with these words: “…self-reflexiveness, metafiction, eclecticism, redundancy, multiplicity, discontinuity, intertextuality, parody, the dissolution of character and narrative instance, the erasure of boundaries, and the destabilization of the reader.”

This new collection explores this country, the city of mirrors and the subjectivity of reality to a world, according to a particular perception; in the complexity of times. This collection will turn around mocked mood, mixture of fabrics and motives. Feathers and froufrou. Fantastic and marvellous. And Humour.

Tata Christiane is a Berlin based label by Julie Bourgeois and Hanrigabriel.
