Transylvania born designer Dora Abodi, now based in Milan with numerous accolades, presented her debut collection at Fashion Scout today.

She is famed for her baroque futurism signature, presenting robotic tendencies across her SS15 collection. Abodi’s roots are revealed with the dark and super heroine style that runs throughout her previous collection.

This season she continued with her signature futuristic pattern prints, inspired by past and future classical art and religious rituals with high technology. The collection sees a mix of metallic, royal blue, rose gold, champagne silver and mesh black and white. Different fabrics used across the collection included print silks, leather, pearls and cabochons, silk organza, metallic gold lame, jacquard and embroidery. 

On the first half of the show, mesh black top and knee length skirt with a blazer appeared within the prints which were rich, vivid and organic. As the show progressed, the collection introduced feminine concepts. 

Evening gown, pencil skirt and white embodied floral collars all blended into the collection. A dark romantic vibe with heavily smoked eye make-up and black wigs featured. Towards the end of the show, Abodi surprised the audience with horns and white graffiti on the model's shoulders and faces. 

Abodi’s aesthetic is exaggerated and hyperbolic and she has succeeded in producing an interesting statement pieces for the fashion-forward woman.
