KABK The Hague Fashion Show 2017

Roos Boshart
The Fashion & Textile department of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague held their annual Fashion show on Saturday June 17.
The class of 2017 is a rather small class of four graduates, however all four profiled themselves in their own authentic way.

Roos Boshart presented the collection 'I am a slave of your perception, you are a slave of mine'. With this collection she explored the interaction between the body, the self and the other. 'By taking iconic and recognizable fashion pieces, which I presentwithout any context, I show the pure core of clothing in relation to the body.
Questions I investigated were, amongst others, how do we perceive each other and how can we influence this? How does fashion play a role in how we see ‘the other’?

Rachael Cheong presented an intruiging proposal titled 'We Know What You Are Hiding',  a collection that is build around the idea of dolls as the keeper of secrets. 'They sit in your room, watch everything you do, know what you mutter in your sleep and know your deepest, darkest secrets. Taking my obsession with dolls to another level, the body of a doll is seen as a surrogate body onto which we project ourselves.'

Thalojna Slui
'Out of Touch is based on schizophrenia and the sense of losing reality. Also, I got intrigued by Jean Dubuffet and Outsiders Art, and used that as inspiration to create my own installation. I hope to convey a message that although you might be suffering from a mental illness, the world you experience is still complete. It’s all a matter of perspective.'

Veronika Konvickova showed a romantic womenswear collection 'Silent Wonderlust' inspired by the relationship between silence and sound. 'It involves the search to escape the constant motion of a busy life and never-ending noise. I would like to inspire people to seek more silence in their life and surroundings, to slow down and take more time to reconnect with their inner self'.

In addition to the graduates the show also featured experiments by first year, ethnical and historical costumes. The stand-outs in the 2nd year where Lina Lau, Trumaine Huijts and Vincent Wong and the in the 3rd year students promising proposals where displayed by Laura Snijders, Nina Dekker, Yuki Ito and Nina Dekker.
Next to the shows there was an exhibition 'Exposed' where also the textiles students such as Joana Schneider and Min Gweon presented their work.
