URBAN ELEGANCE

PART 2

In this second part we decided to work a lot with Crepe Satin and Light Grey Silver Satin with Embroidery. The shades of greyness merged really well with the setting, and aimed to reflect humbleness.

In this section the urban attitude was toned down, and the vision was to create a space that reflected grace and elegance; but with urban people.

Malmö (Sweden), which is the city where the photo shoot took place, is a transformed city. A place that has gone from industrial to urban chic in the last 20 years. Modern architecture meets old parts of the city, and many people from all over the world live here.

It is also a city that faces many challenges, and where more could be done in regards to integration and inclusion. But it is the city where I became me, and where these designs originate from. It is a city that gave me the opportunity to fail and succeed, and to evolve as an artist. A city that holds memories of the past and the present, and will always be my childhood home.

To me the city of Malmö became the inspiration and backdrop to creating the looks of Urban Elegance.

“In antiquity and the Middle Ages, grey was the color of undyed wool, and thus was the color most commonly worn by peasants and the poor. It was also the color worn by Cistercian monks and friars of the Franciscan and Capuchin orders as a symbol of their vows of humility and poverty.” [5].

“During the Renaissance and the Baroque, grey began to play an important role in fashion and art. Black became the most popular color of the nobility, particularly in Italy, France, and Spain, and grey and white were harmonious with it.” [5].
