French-Austrian designer Marina Hoermanseder founded her brand at Central Saint Martins and showcased her graduate collection that captured an audience at Graduate Fashion Week. She showcases her AW14 collection at Fashion Scout London that featured elements of her signature style incorporated into sophisticated new styles that juxtaposed the hard and the soft.
A colour palette of muted nudes and greys was accentuated with bursts of deep mauve complimented the collection that brought together elements of fetish wear and feminine elegance. Numerous buckles and fastening proved to be the staple point of the designer’s aesthetic with new takes on corsetry. Tactile materials are sculpted into sleek silhouettes where the models appear striking yet demure.
It is Hoermanseder’s techniques with working with leather that makes her un-missable and absolutely mesmerising to watch. A contrast of draping and structured detailing creates an effect that is unique to the French-Austrian designer.
The showcase here at Fashion Scout is a celebration of Hoermanseder’s ability develop and grow with her design process and is definitely one to keep an eye on.
