Amit Baruch at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2013
'I Am Collecting Beautiful Objects' is the title of the wonderful menswear collection that Amit Baruch presented at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2013.
Amit Baruch, is a young fashion designer, art / trend director. She graduated in 2011 from "Shenkar, College Of Engineering and Design" with a Bachelor in Fashion Design (BDes.). Since last year she is living in London where she moved to just over a year ago following to work position in the fashion industry.
"During my studies, I mostly designed for women, but then I fell in love with the thought of doing menswear and had a change of heart. In addition, I love working with leather, designing bags and accessories.
In a world of images, I am a storyteller. I am driven by finding ways to fold elements from my daily life o my design. I have always collected beautiful stories in form of objects, aiming to translate my feelings into my work. Most of my projects begin when capturing images of my environment through ‘self - taken photographs'. I expose my inner world to the observer - like meeting a perfect stranger, wanting to give him a gift in the shape of a beautiful story. I am a keen researcher, always curious and naturally well into music and the visual arts. With this in my heart, I reflect my cultural knowledge into all I do and create. Very inspired by the visuality of objects, by the human behaviour, the humour in it and above all, good taste."
