Slick and professional looking exhibition, CH Talents: Depicting Fashion, is the Swiss contribution to the International Fashion Showcase. Teaming up with cult favourite bi-annual fashion magazine DASH they have created a coolly modern and stylish installation to represent the best of Switzerland. The designers featured are; Julian Zigerli, PortenierRoth, Stefanie Biggel, Studio Laend Phuengkit, Studio Winkler and YVY.
Featured is the new, earily beautiful SS13 film by Zurich based menswear designer Julian Zigerli, who’s clothes focus on innovation and useful, smart technology. This collection is inspired by Tears of Joy, as represented in the film which is supposed to instill a feeling of “coming home while at the same time letting go”.
Other eye-catching work by leather accessories designer YVY in which the leather is hand-crafted into bold yet feminine pieces. These are more like works of art than garments but all are made to measure to ensure the customer of their comfort and wearability.
All designers leave a very strong imprint of Swiss style, modern, fresh and innovative. They have all managed to fuse their individual techniques and experimental design ideas with an up-to-date style to rival any major fashion city.
